Long absent from the scholarly literature, Congolese migration to Belgium now occupies a greater place in academic research. Nevertheless the various disciplinary approaches undertaken and the many topics of interest explored have not exhausted the complexity of this diaspora, too often the object of prejudice in popular opinion and public policies. The position of “the Congolese issue” in the academic world is thus rarely problematized due to confusion over how to categorize the Congo and the Congolese – either as ‘Africa,’ ‘Central Africa,’ ‘Sub-Sahara,’ etc. This reflects a ‘geography of the Other’ that significantly confounds current social processes at work in Belgium and the particularity of this (post)migratory situation. Grounded in empirical research, this issue in moving beyond merely highlighting a relatively marginalized group in Belgian Migration Studies, is focusing on the postcolonial stakes of the Congolese presence in Belgium. The authors take different viewpoints to explore the place of the Congolese in the former metropole and the forms of marginalization they face. The everyday life, the state regulations and the dynamics of identity are then various lens to bring to light the racial logics at work in the Belgian multiculturalism. [less ▲]

Vingt ans après les premières émeutes « maghrébines », Bruxelles a été durant l’hiver 2011-12, le théâtre de manifestations « congolaises » que certains médias et pouvoirs politiques qualifièrent d’émeutes. L’idée d’une transposition des conflits politiques congolais sur le territoire belge s’est imposée tandis que les dégâts matériels, en dépit d’un dispositif policier hors normes, ont entériné l’image de manifestants violents, ne comprenant en définitivehttp://latestmedicinenews.com/ que le langage de la matraque. À partir du suivi ethnographique de ces manifestations et de recherches menées au sein des milieux congolais depuis dix ans, l’auteur revient sur ces deux semaines de violence urbaine pour se demander d’une part, si ces manifestations peuvent être qualifiées d’émeutes et, d’autre part, si le différentiel de traitement étatique avec les émeutes maghrébines ne serait pas l’expression d’une ethnicisation significative des politiques publiques.

This paper investigates the framing of memory associated with a urban district. Formerly « elite », the district of Matonge in Brussels developed at the end of the 1960s- beginning of the 1970s, when no Congolese immigration was identified in Belgium. Converting into an "African " or " multicultural" area, Matonge remains the inevitable place for Congolese meetings and festivals where "another" history can be heard. Grounding on a long-time ethnographical approach, we questioned the history of this district whose territorial frames highlight the original interweaving of Congolese geographies in Belgium and Belgian timelines in DRC (Democratic Republic of Congo, former Zaire). Besides, these narratives expand at the margins of classical circuits of history production and reveal a post-colonial face-to-face with strong continuity with the so-called “parallel development” established by the Belgian colonial order in Congo.

La transformation du paysage religieux de nos villes est une forme de la multiculturalité en acte. Mais celle-ci ne se réduit pas à l’islam qui mobilise la plupart des controverses. Le renouveau religieux qui se manifeste à l’intérieur des communautés congolaises mérite également l’intérêt. [less ▲]

Gender and the Transgression of Moral and Sexual Norms in the Revival Churches of Kinshasa and the Congolese Diaspora. — This paper explores the transgression of religious norms within Revival churches which, following the example of Pentecostalism, have experienced a spectacular success in the Democratic Republic of the Congo as well as in the Congolese Diaspora over the past few decades. While the boundaries separating the “Christian world” and the “Pagan world” are strongly asserted by the born again and generate huge divisions across the Congolese people worldwide, nevertheless it is sometimes difficult to identify these boundaries apart from the professed life-saving and “civilising” morality claims. A case in point involves the recurrent scandals involving Churches and their leaders around issues of money and sex. Based on studies over the past ten years within the Congolese community, we investigate this apparent ambivalence of sexual morality by considering the fact that the Church itself is a place which supports the ongoing construction of a normative utopia, while at the same time hosting practices that directly contradict Christian norms. We shall see how the notion of heterotopia, proposed by Foucault for considering “other spaces”, allows us to avoid the shortcomings of taking a binary approach (emancipation versus submission) toward the offering of religion. Instead we are able to consider pluralistic identity repertories of the churches stemming in part from their long history. The consideration of these transgressions sheds much needed light on the complexity of the issue of gender inside and outside of the Church. [less ▲]
