L'urbanisation africaine sous les reflets du mirage de la mondialisation

Kouakou N'guessan François

Abstract




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.
