La Cellule 39 en Côte d’Ivoire : Processus d’identification et mobilisation d’un groupe d’ex-combattants

Abstract : Cellule 39 in Côte d’Ivoire. The identification process and mobilization of a group of ex-rebels
This article examines demobilized combatants who have experienced “downward social mobility” in Côte d’Ivoire. It focuses on a specific association of demobilized combatants – “Cellule 39” (C39) – and analyses the space it occupies and the strategy of “purely administrative struggle” it has employed in Ivoirian society since 2012. The research shows that the collective identity that was forged around the rebels’ shared past and their belonging to C39 was not enough to dispel internal disagreement within the group. The article illustrates the limits of a purely administrative approach in a country where the use of violence still seems to dictate political action and the means of governing. It as such more broadly questions the fragile nature of the transition to peace in a “post-conflict” Côte d’Ivoire marked by instability.
