About "Identités territoriales et conflits dans la province du Sud-Kivu, R.D. Congo" from Bosco Muchukiwa
Les territoires de Fizi, de Kalehe et d'Uvira sont des foyers de conflits au Sud-Kivu (R.D. Congo); ils ont racines dans le processus d'organisation de l'espace politique à l'époque coloniale. La reconfiguration de l'espace a produit des nouvelles entités territoriales et administratives (les chefferies agrandies, les secteurs et les territoires) qui sont des réalités sociologiques et politiques. La méconnaissance des différences entre le territoire ethnique et étatique et entre peuples autochtones et allochtones est un adjuvant de conflits. Quelques pistes susceptibles d'orienter des actions pour la paix sociale sont exposées; elles passent par l'exigence éthique préalable d'une reconnaissance réciproque des organisations territoriales, de l'histoire des peuples et d'une prise en considération des normes de droit.
