Vivre ensemble ou la douleur d'être « en grande famille »

Abstract : The African family has often been magnified by its consensus of conviviality and its apparent organic solidarity. In fact, the intimate experiences of individual relations at the heart of a couple or between siblings reveals the violence inherent in the conflicts they live and the effects of arbitrary regulations which the family is builted on. In the end, in the face of sequences of direct or indirect threats, a member of an extended family has a restricted number of possible appeals, contrary to individuals living in post-industrial societies.
