    Legal repression of protests, revolts and resistance in Central Africa

    VIth European Conference on African Studies (2015)

    Having long remained in the shadows, the issues of legal history and colonial justice are now experiencing a revival. For about a decade, researchers of different imperial spaces have placed this issue on their agenda. The panel we propose aims to deepen and explore the role of justice in the policies of Central Africa. More specifically, we wish to highlight the intervention of colonial courts in dealing with disputes, revolts and resistance (open or silent) of the African population. The analysis of the repression of resistance leads to consider the implications of colonial policy on local populations and that of the dynamics of power between the administration, the magistrates and the natives.
