L'urbanisation africaine sous les reflets du mirage de la mondialisation
Reflection on "African urbanisation in the light of the mirage of globalization" focuses on the following main preoccupations: Characteristics of African urbanisation in the context of globalization; Response of social and cultural anthropology; and Perspectives offered to research and research-action? This paper raises questions about the processes of urbanisation in Africa and its developmental corollaries within world-wide ideology. It finally focuses on anthropological perspectives of a true "africanisation" of urban space within the global perspective.
