Des fondements idéologiques de la confrontation politique autour du «monument des martyrs» dans la ville d'Abidjan

Abstract : This text is an analysis of the ideological foundations of the political confrontation around the "monument of martyrs". Rather, it aims to shed light on the way in which urban life is thought, influenced and organized by the mobilization of political ideologies. Starting from the "monument of the martyrs" or its ruins, it reveals the way in which the ideologies produced around the victims of political conflicts remain incompatible and become the support for different models of action in the city of Abidjan. As for the party in power, the ones it produces are essentially tools of competition and restructuring of political life in its favor. The mobilized data collection technique is the semi-directive interview. The content analysis revealed the various representations made around the monument or its ruins. The results of the study show a kind of trial on the various states of the "monument of martyrs" through the related speeches: denial of deaths, loss of legitimacy of the old regime in favor of the current power, evolution representations of the monument as an identity infrastructure. It follows a type of formation of political barriers that relies on the recognition or not of martyrs associated with urban logics.
