Combattants et anciens combattants au prisme des transformations de l’Etat

EHESS 54 bd Raspail, 75006 PARIS,

salle AS1_24 (sous-sol)

Cette journée d’étude s’inscrit dans le cadre du séminaire “Combattants et anciens combattants dans des Etats en transformation” à l’EHESS ; elle mettra l’accent sur les anciens combattants, leurs trajectoires d’après-guerre, leur rôle dans les sociétés en recomposition, et sur le rapport entretenu avec les États en (re)construction par le biais d’associations, de partis politiques, d’ONG mais aussi au travers de leur investissement dans l’économie, que ce soit sous une forme légale ou non, ou dans de nouvelles situations d’usage de la violence (lors de manifestations, d’opérations  de maintien de l’ordre ou dans de nouveaux conflits armés). Après une session exposant les limites des approches en termes de DDR (Désarmement, démobilisation, réintégration), la journée d’étude s’articule autour de deux questionnements : que fait l’Etat aux anciens combattants ? Que font les anciens combattants à l’Etat ? Continuer la lecture de Workshop – Combattants et anciens combattants au prisme des transformations de l’Etat – 27 juin 2018 – 9h30/16h

The Central Asia–Afghanistan Relationship. From Soviet Intervention to the Silk Road Initiatives

EDITED BY MARLENE LARUELLE – CONTRIBUTIONS BY GULDEN ASHKENOVA; ALEXANDER DIENER; ANTONIO GIUSTOZZI; ARTEMY M. KALINOVSKY; MARLENE LARUELLE; BRUCE PANNIER; SEBASTIEN PEYROUSE; GAEL RABALLAND; BOTA RAKISHEVA AND EKATERINA STEPANOVA

Central Asia is a relatively understudied neighbor of Afghanistan. The region is often placed into a number of historical and political contexts—a section of the Silk Road, a pawn in the “Great Game,” the “spillover” state that exemplifies the failure of US foreign policy—that limit scholarly understanding.

Interviews of Central Asian afgantsy who fought in Afghanistan during the Soviet invasion of 1979-1989

Интервью с воинами-интернационалистами Афганской войны 1979-1989 годов

http://centralasiaprogram.org/publications/memos-and-ebooks

This book offers unique insight into the memory of the Central Asian afgantsy, who fought in Afghanistan during the Soviet invasion of 1979-1989. This work of oral history, organized by a team of Kazakh, Tajik, and Uzbek scholars under the supervision of Prof. Laruelle, contributes to a better understanding of the deep influence of the Soviet-Afghan war on the Soviet Central Asian social fabric, and the memories still at play today.

Данная книга представляет собой уникальную информацию – память войнов-«афганцев» из трех стран Центральной Азии: Казахстана, Таджикистана и Узбекистана, принявших непосредственное участие в военных действиях в Афганистане в ходе десятилетней войны.

Благодаря замечательной работе группы, состоящей из казахстанских, таджикских и узбекских специалистов, «афганцы» Центральной Азии, наконец, получили возможность высказаться. Будучи самостоятельными вершителями своих судеб, далекими от нынешних идеологических установок, они описывают реальность своей повседневной жизни, свой опыт в качестве солдат и офицеров, а также взаимоотношения с жителями Афганистана. Они определяют то, что считают важным сохранить в памяти, в основном, свою гордость за советские достижения. Данная книга посвящена памяти всех «афганцев» Центральной Азии, которых уже нет в живых и кто уже не может поведать миру свою историю.

Article – “How Russia Treats Its Ukraine Veterans. Returning volunteer fighters have been treated more like an inconvenience than as national heroes.”

By Christopher Miller

Russian volunteer Andrei Kamayev arrived in war-torn eastern Ukraine in late September 2014, bursting with patriotic bravado and convinced that he was following in the footsteps of his grandfather—a Soviet intelligence officer in World War II—by fighting against “fascists and Nazis.”

Using terms propagated by the Kremlin to describe Ukrainian government forces fighting Russia-backed separatists, the 49-year-old Kamayev admits to other motives for joining up: He also wanted to help restore the Russky Mir, or “Russian World,” and stave off the perceived encroachment of NATO.
