Sémantique et usages du mot « peuple » dans le discours politique africain : Des conférences nationales à nos jours

Abstract : The national conferences in the French-speaking countries of Africa were a space and a period of democratic expression of the peoples who lived under quasi-monarchical regimes with single parties and a single ideology of thought. They were therefore a formula which allowed the "people" to express themselves in their diversity. However, the observation of the experience of national conferences for certain countries, indicates a certain exacerbation of ethnic, linguistic and religious divisions. At the level of participants' representations, popular legitimacy and sovereignty posed a real problem. How to speak of the sovereignty of the assemblies of these national conferences, when no member was elected or emanated from the elected institutions? Is an assembly that brings together representatives of political parties, associations, independent delegates living outside the country, etc. can she be truly sovereign and speak for the people? And of which people?
