Gouverner par la parole : parlements de la rue, pratiques oratoires et subjectivation politique en Côte d’Ivoire

Abstract : Governing through speech: street parliaments, oratory practices and political subjectivation in Côte d’Ivoire
In the course of Côte d’Ivoire’s crisis, an extensive network of street “parliaments” and “agoras” was created by nationalist youth. The article shows how these parliaments worked effectively as an apparatus where, beyond mobilizing citizens, young patriots (jeunes patriotes) asserted themselves as moral and political subjects, using oratory and hermeneutic skills to unveil the “truth” of the Ivoirian conflict. Their “professionalization” as orators was linked to a specific form of governamentality, where the uttering of truth was given a fundamental role in governing citizenry and producing subjectivity. The article closes with a brief reflection on the transformations undergone by this governamentality in the post-conflict context, once the “parliamentary” apparatus has been erased.
