The eastern part of the Nimba Mountains Biosphere Reserve is constituted of two strictly protected areas: the whole Guinean southern slope of the massif, called Gouéla II, and the Déré forest, which are separated by 10 km of buffer zone consisting of lowlands with high human encroachment. A behavioral and ecological study of non-habituated chimpanzees was initiated in this area to provide information on their habitat-use and ranging patterns. Data on chimpanzee presence were systematically and periodically collected between 2006 and 2008 using a combination of 3 survey methods. In Gouéla II, 75% of chimpanzee’s presence indicators occurred above 700m high, in altitude forest, galleries and secondary vegetation habitats. In Déré, owing to an unclear protection status, the forest was logged in 1999-2000, and then swarmed in by cultivators. Today the Déré forest is critically damaged and only one chimpanzee track was observed during 29 days of survey. By offering new information on Nimba chimpanzees, this work also targets conservation perspectives of the species and its unique environment. [less ▲]

The paper is about the dominance and coalition relationship among male chimpanzees. It focuses on the dependance relationship between the members of the coalition and distinguishes stable and unstable coalitions. A coalition is unstable if the support of the dominated individual is conditional and stable if it is not (i.e. among two brothers). In an unstable coalition the dominated indivuual can afford some priviledge, the dominant is very dependent on the subordinate and the relationship with the dominant is tense. Analogies with human power relationships are suggested. [less ▲]

Over the last decade, China has deeply affected the economic map of Latin America. All the Latin American countries quickly increased their exchanges with China and get engaged in new plans for exchanges, cooperation and partnerships. These evolutions have highlighted the American lack of leadership and the European loss of competitiveness. Numbers of researches tend to analyse the Sino-Latin American relationship with the eyes of reciprocity. This contribution rather makes the choice of analysing China’s strategy for growth on the world stage, focusing on its ties with Latin America and Brazil especially: cooperation or hegemony? According to this approach, the increase of China’s influence doesn’t only depend on its resources, nor on its capacity to mobilize them opportunely. It also depends on its external recognition. Thus, the power of China can be measured through its capacity to “assert itself as a reference” for its emerging peers, or even for Western powers. By integrating all dimensions of the Chinese power through its foreign policy and its incantatory diplomacy (anti-hegemonism, world multipolarization, South-South cooperation, etc.) , this chapter will try to identify real Chinese influence by measuring the distance between perception and reality. Against the backdrop of the following hypothesis: does the Chinese penetration in Latin America have a notable impact on the relations of Europe and the United States with this part of the world?

Why is it so difficult to talk about China in a nuanced and contrasting manner without falling back on superlatives and generalisations? In about thirty years, China’s GDP per capita has multiplied by eight. From a marginal economic power during the Maoist period (1949-1978), China is now ranked tenth in terms of global economic weight. “Wealth and power” (fu qiang) is the expression that embodies China’s quest for modernity since the second half of the 19th century, when China was still under the yoke of the West. This ambition is still at the heart of the “Chinese dream of rejuvenation of the Chinese nation” dear to Xi Jinping, which he set out during the Third Plenum of the 18th Central Committee of the Chinese Communist Party. But focusing only on this vision of “wealth and power” takes us back to one of the most common ways of representing China: reducing the ongoing socio-economic changes and dynamics to a set of numeric values, ultimately reified and homogenised. The increased power and internationalisation of the Chinese economy has prompted a combination of worry and enthusiasm. What does this imply about the paradigm shift in the way we portray this country? Perhaps it is still hard to leave behind the image of a subordinate, poor and voiceless China and consider the Chinese people as, at least, our equals. [less ▲]

Cet article s'attelle à décrire la stratégie de construction du statut de puissance de la Chine sur la scène internationale. Partant, il s'agit de s'interroger sur la capacité de cette puissance émergente à produire et à faire accepter des règles au niveau de son espace géopolitique immédiat et au-delà. Dès lors, se pose la question de savoir si cet acteur est à même d'instaurer un sous-système en dehors du contrôle extérieur et, partant, alternatif à l'ordre international dominant. Dans l'analyse de la construction de sa puissance, il s'agit d'étudier les rapports que la Chine entretient avec les autres puissances émergentes et la manière dont elle se positionne, tant par rapport à la puissance dominante américaine que par rapport au multilatéralisme.

Au lendemain de la répression du mouvement démocratique de 1989, journalistes, analystes et autres « China watchers » abondaient en commentaires crépusculaires sur la pérennité du régime chinois. L’argument le plus souvent évoqué était celui d’un décalage insoutenable entre réformes économiques – qui connaîtront un approfondissement à l’occasion du fameux « voyage dans le Sud » de Deng Xiaoping en 1992 – et l’absence de réformes politiques, un décalage qui devait presque immanquablement signifier la fin du régime communiste. Quelque vingt-cinq ans plus tard, où en est-on ? [less ▲]

According to China's Ambassador in Berlin Shi Mingde, "pragmatic cooperation between Germany and China is playing a leading role in China-EU relations". Symbolized by numerous diplomatics comings and goings, and by fruitful trade, this "special relation" between China and Germany bases above all on their economic symbiosis. Whereas the European Union (EU) tries to develop a common and coherent strategic approach towards China, the context of the euro crisis strengthened the Chinese preference to a German partner perceived as the main European economic and political player. Between cooperation and competition, as illustrated by the case of solar panels, is the China-Germany relationship growing at the risk of Europe? [less ▲]
