    Family Migrations and Uses of Law

    Actors, Norms and Regulation within International Families' Movement

    In the last decades, international migrations have significantly influenced family structures. Individuals migrate to rejoin their spouse or family; some have to juggle between the law of their country of origin and of their country of residence to divorce; others give birth to a child in a country where they have no right to reside. Minors are adopted or legally taken, others are conceived abroad (surrogacy mothers, medically-assisted procreaction), some are forced or invited to leave their country. This symposium aims at filling existing gaps in this highly topical field of research, regularly approached either by a disciplinary entry, or by employing the regulating action of law. On the contrary, this symposium investigates several other perspectives assumed by the law and the plurality of actors concerned by it.

    Cameroon and the challenge of plural ethno-identities

    The issues and challenges of national construction

    Le Cameroun est une Afrique en miniature qui rassemble en son sein plus de 230 groupes ethniques. Les replis identitaires et les revendications sociales de certaines catégories sociales camerounaises ont marqué la scène nationale à travers l’affirmation tacite de la proximité de certains peuples et de certaines ethnies au pouvoir politique. Ceci se lit à travers les memoranda et les motions de soutien, devenus l’expression autorisée des revendications populaires de certains groupes ethniques frustrés de ne pas bénéficier assez des retombés du développement national. Plus récemment, les revendications corporatistes de quelques enseignants et avocats des régions du Nord-Ouest et du Sud-Ouest ont été récupérées dans le cadre des velléités sécessionnistes.
