‘Rethinking the Right to the City from the Global South » is a research program that gathers 14 researchers working on 8 selected cities in Sub-Saharan Africa and Latin America, including Addis Ababa. The program aims at assessing the production of a right to the city « from the ground » in the Global South. It questions the capacity of urban dwellers to produce and to access the urban space through every day practices in cities that are highly affected by urban renewals and redevelopment projects. A common methodology based on a local and qualitative approach has been used to lead the fieldworks. In Addis Ababa, the researchers have focused their attention on life in peripheral condominiums.

East-African Runners: Socially-Constructed Sport Abilities and Migration Networks

Par / by Benoit Gaudin

Les études scientifiques sur les coureurs de fond africains s’inscrivent, en règle générale, dans la continuité de la longue tradition de recherches menées sur les populations « noires » depuis plusieurs siècles, aux États-Unis et en Europe principalement. « En quoi ‘ces gens-là’ sont-ils différents de ‘nous ‘ ? » se demandent en substance des générations de chercheurs en sciences de la vie, tour à tour en médecine, en phrénologie, anatomie, physiologie et plus récemment en génétique. Las, aucune de ces recherches n’a découvert le moindre indice d’une différence plus fondamentale que la pigmentation de l’épiderme pour caractériser l’ensemble de cette population. Mais ce courant de recherche ne s’essouffle pas pour autant, tant la croyance en une altérité biologique de cette population est forte.

Scientific studies on East-African distance runners usually follow the long tradition of research on ’Black’ populations, stating in essence that ‘these people are different from us‘. Generations of researchers have been founding their works on this undeclared and often unconscious premise, successively in medicine, phrenology, anatomy, physiology and more recently in genetics. And although very few of them would admit it publicly, none of these research works has ever found any evidence of a more fundamental difference than the pigmentation of the skin to characterize these populations from others. Yet this paradigm is still in force, based on the deeply-rooted belief of a biological otherness of ‘Black’ populations.
