Nouvelle parution/New release : n. s. revue Moussons 31, 2018 « Florilège asiatique offert à Jean Baffie »

Vient de paraître / juin 2018

Moussons. Recherche en sciences humaines sur l’Asie du Sud-Est, n. 31 (fasc. 1, 2018), (revue indexée, réalisée par l’IrAsia, UMR 7306 CNRS & Aix-Marseille Université, Presses universitaires de Provence), 263 p., ISBN 979-10-320-0165-3.

Numéro spécial « Florilège asiatique offert à Jean Baffie »
coordonné par Pierre Le Roux et Louise Pichard-Bertaux
Ce numéro généraliste de Moussons est dédié à Jean Baffie, spécialiste de la Thaïlande et, plus largement, de l’Asie du Sud-Est. Pluridisciplinaires, les travaux de Jean Baffie sont essentiels à la compréhension de cette aire géographique. Chercheur au CNRS, il a dirigé l’IRSEA à Marseille et a également été responsable éditorial de Moussons. Pierre Le Roux et Louise Pichard-Bertaux ont eu envie de lui offrir un numéro de cette revue, faisant appel à des chercheurs qui ont croisé son chemin ou se sont inspirés de ses travaux. Ce florilège fait écho à plusieurs thèmes de recherche de Jean Baffie que sont la ville, la diaspora chinoise ou la littérature thaïe. En introduction, Pierre Le Roux retrace le parcours de ce chercheur curieux et éclectique et y adjoint une bibliographie. Bangkok, ville que Jean Baffie sillonne et étudie depuis près de quarante ans, est mise à l’honneur par Charles Goldblum. Gilles Delouche présente ensuite une fine analyse d’un long poème en siamois. Thanida Boonwanno, que Jean Baffie a dirigée dans ses travaux de thèse, lui rend ici hommage en présentant un article sur une zone frontière entre Thaïlande et Cambodge. La question de l’organisation sociale et spatiale d’un village du Viêt Nam est ensuite examinée par Bernard Formoso. Barbara Drouot-Baille aborde la thématique phare des recherches de Jean Baffie : la diaspora chinoise, ici étudiée dans le contexte tahitien. Bernard Sellato offre un panorama des différentes fonctions de la vannerie à Bornéo. Invité hors des frontières habituelles de Moussons, Bernard Moizo présente une recherche sur les aborigènes d’Australie et leur relation et leur résistance à la mondialisation. Deux notes viennent conclure ce numéro, l’une sur la difficulté de traduction du thaï (Louise Pichard-Bertaux), l’autre sur la cérémonie du wai khru pratiquée en Thaïlande (Edouard Degay Delpeuch).

SEPP hand over and HSEPP conferences publication

Chers membres

Chèr.e.s amie.s

Nous vous informons de la passation des activités et des données du réseau http://www.shs-encounters-cambodia.ird.fr/au Center for Khmer Studies.

Comme vous le savez, le réseau a été créé de manière informelle en 2008 afin de répondre à un sentiment d’isolement disciplinaire et à un désir d’échanges et de débats scientifiques autour de la recherche en sciences sociales au Cambodge.Il représente plus de 1200 personnes.

Au moment de passer le relai au CKS il nous a semblé intéressant de rassembler, dans un livret, les 82 conférences qui ont été organisées par les HSEPP entre 2008 et 2017, complété en annexe d’une version khmère de ce document.

Ce livret est accessible à l’adresse suivante:

http://classiques.uqac.ca/contemporains/Hancart_Petitet_Pascale/Social_sciences_in_Cambodia/Social_sciences_in_Cambodia.html

Le CKS poursuivra les activités de diffusion menées dans le cadre de notre collaboration. Vous pouvez les contacter à ce sujet center@khmerstudies.org, et consulter leur site http://www.khmerstudies.org/

En vous remerciant de l’intérêt porté aux sciences sociales cambodgiennes, nous vous adressons toutes nos amitiés.

Major new investigation exposes role of palm oil industry in bankrolling the corruption of Indonesian democracy

An in-depth article released today reveals how the global palm oil industry, which supplies an ingredient found in thousands of products on supermarket shelves in Europe and the US, is driving the corruption of elections in Indonesia, the world’s third-largest democracy.

Ghosts in the machine, from Earthsight’s The Gecko Project and environmental news site Mongabay, exposes how dark money from the palm oil industry is flushing into regional elections, allowing corrupt politicians to entrench their positions and channel land to plantation firms.

The investigation examines the events leading up to the arrest of Indonesia’s highest-ranking judge, Akil Mochtar, in October 2013. In the wake of Akil’s arrest it emerged that he had accepted millions of dollars from a number of candidates involved in regional elections across the Southeast Asian nation. The results of the many of these contests had been disputed before his court, the highest in the land, to be decided impartially.

Akil’s case, the biggest corruption scandal in years, electrified Indonesia, as it became clear that the judge had become a part of the corrupt system he was supposed to police. In 2014 Akil was jailed for life, but the source of the money used to bribe him remained in the shadows. Until now.

Ghosts in the machine traces the money to a series of land deals worth US$9.2 million, cut in the heart of Borneo in the months leading up to the regional elections in 2013. The investigation pieces together the web of shell companies and middlemen who play a central role in moving money from palm oil firms to politicians, and land licenses for plantations in the other direction. It draws from company documents, court records, and interviews with sources in Jakarta and Borneo, including confidential sources close to the people involved.

One of these sources, who acted as a fixer for one of the politicians central to the case, likened the relationship between palm oil firms and politicians to “a cycle of evil”.

The deals in this case represent an area ten times the size of Manhattan, covering some of the best rainforest left on the island of Borneo, inhabited by thousands of indigenous people. Ghosts in the machine reveals how the need to bankroll a corrupt and expensive election drove the politician, a district chief named Hambit Bintih, to issue licenses that were against the interests of villagers in his jurisdiction, who had repeatedly protested against the prospect of large-scale plantations.

The Malaysian company that benefited from the land deals, is selling palm oil to traders that supply supermarkets across Europe and the US.

The available evidence suggests this case is just the tip of the iceberg. Ghosts in the machine builds on an investigation released by Earthsight and Mongabay last October, titled The making of a palm oil fiefdom, which chronicled how two of the industry’s biggest companies, Wilmar and the Triputra Group, built their businesses by buying assets from the family members and cronies of another politician in Borneo, a district chief named Darwan Ali.

The corrupt use of money in elections is an established and growing problem in Indonesia. The nation’s anti-graft agency has committed to cracking down on what has become known as “money politics”, as districts, towns and provinces across the country prepare for another round of elections this June — including in Gunung Mas, the district where the land deals behind the bribery of Indonesia’s top judge took place.

Ahead of another round of regional elections this June, candidates are being arrested for engaging in corrupt acts to bankroll their campaigns on an almost weekly basis. Ghosts in the machine reveals how more illicit, secretive deals may be going on under the radar; and how even if the politicians are busted, the palm oil firms stand to benefit once again.

Nouvelle publication : Mirroring Power: Ethnogenesis and Integration among the Phunoy of Northern Laos / By Vanina Bouté, 2018

The Phunoy are a significant Tibeto-Burmese population group from Phongsaly Province in northern Laos that has long been considered acculturated because of its adoption of various features of neighboring Tai societies, particularly Buddhism. This book presents pioneering research based on in-depth ethnographic surveys in Phunoy villages. It reexamines the supposed acculturation of the Phunoy and analyzes the group’s own independent identity. The author demonstrates how the Phunoy emerged from groups of war fugitives who sought new frontiers, and how they constructed a privileged “mirroring” relationship with the various Tai and Lao realms dominating the region. As guardians of the borders and allies of the colonial authorities who administered the province, they progressively formed a territory known as Mueang Phunoy, where they have securely established themselves as indispensable intermediaries between state power and the other mountain ethnic groups.

This study reveals long-lasting social, political, and ritual differentiations within Phunoy society. The integration of the Phunoy—and the accompanying disintegration of their village communities—continues within Lao society today, as part of the history of the stabilization of the margins in northern mainland Southeast Asia.

Highlights

  • The first ethnography of the Phunoy, a Tibeto-Burmese people and society in Laos
  • An ethno-historical approach to the creation of the Phunoy over a century
  • Analysis of a society that has perpetuated itself by mirroring the dominant powers

About the author

VANINA BOUTÉ is an associate professor of anthropology at the University of Picardie and a member of the Centre Asie du Sud-Est in Paris, France.

What others are saying

“This lively book is the first ever study of one of the least known ethnic groups in mainland Southeast Asia. Vanina Bouté provides a fascinating reconstruction of the ethnogenesis of the Phunoy, which is inextricably linked to the politically dominant Tai Lue and Lao lowland populations. She examines the Phunoy settlement patterns, clan system, and religious configurations and brilliantly shows, from a diachronic point of view, the transformation of Phunoy ethnicity in the wake of migration, resettlement, and social modernization.”—Volker Grabowsky, University of Hamburg

“With this superb monograph, Vanina Bouté spearheads the nascent movement of in-depth, grounded anthropological research on the margins of the communist regimes of Asia.”—Jean Michaud, Université Laval
