Resumo

Researches in international relations show various results on the domination nature of relations between the tutelary power of a country and its socio-economic fate. Under the prism of these dominant-dominated relations, it seemed judicious and timely to analyze the nature of the multiform relationships between Cameroon and its former tutelary powers, as well as the dynamics recorded in bilateral relations in a context of globalization. The purpose of these analyzes is to understand better the processes that have structured these captive relationships and to explore its patterns of deconstruction of dependence.

Study Day - 20 December 2017

Concept

Since the 15th century, the people on the territory called Cameroon today have been in contact with Portuguese, Spanish, Dutch and English traders, sailors, explorers and missionaries. This external relationship took on an eminently political form on the basis of the German-Douala Treaty on July 12th 1884, thus inaugurating the sequence of tutelary powers respectively carried out by Germany, France and Great Britain. From protectorate domination to colonial administration, the exercise of sovereignty by these Europeans during this sequence of more than half a century has profoundly impacted the Cameroonians’ way of life. Despite Cameroon's independence, the implications and consequences of these powers persist and still seem to have repercussions today. This situation questions its true autonomy, precisely at a time when the country claims its emergence by 2035. How can one explain the paradox between the independence of Cameroon from its international partners and the economic and socio-cultural ties to these countries?

Researches in international relations show various results on the domination nature of relations between the tutelary power of a country and its socio-economic fate. Under the prism of these dominant-dominated relations, it seemed judicious and timely to analyze the nature of the multiform relationships between Cameroon and its former tutelary powers, as well as the dynamics recorded in bilateral relations in a context of globalization. The purpose of these analyzes is to understand better the processes that have structured these captive relationships and to explore its patterns of deconstruction of dependence. The research is based on the premise of the contribution of this reflection to the erection of a national take-off platform. Beyond political sovereignty, it is a matter of understanding the forms of latent or patent dependencies, old or new, known or unrecognized by Cameroon and by Cameroonians. The relationship with foreigners, including religious people, all religions and generations taken into account, will not be neglected in the search for the root causes of Cameroonian dependency markers.

From two main points, this study day aims at questioning the topic around the relation to former administrators of Cameroon. On the one hand, the legal, historical, economic and political aspects will be highlighted; and, on the other hand, reflections will focus on cultural, anthropological, psychological and sociological aspects. In addition, diversiform issues related to the mentality of the assisted and the mentality of underdevelopment will be taken into consideration. The pertinent abstracts or summaries will be selected for the participation of their authors in this discursive construction on the future of Cameroon.

Proposals

Submissions of a maximum of 250 words are expected in French or English, the two languages of the study day. The title of up to 8 words will be followed by the name of the author of the abstract and about 5 keywords. Other editorial guidelines are: Times New Roman font, size 12, single spacing. The document is to be sent in a Word file. The pertinent final papers will be selected and compiled at the end of this study day in view of a publication of a collective book.
