Les complexes communautaires dans l'infra-histoire : une étude du paysage mauricien

Abstract : The History of Mauritius mirrors a religious and cultural diversity from which has originated the idea of the « rainbow nation ». Other concepts, including intercultural relations, « en sel lépep » have reinforced the idea of a nation whilst poorly hiding the complexes that have sprouted from colonialism and diasporic movements. Persisting communalism betrays the complexes interiorised by the different communities of the country. During conflicting situations, these complexes give rise to phobias, ostracisms, and even devious behaviour. Should we not better diagnose the communal complexes, instead of finding miraculous solutions or reconciling communities with fashionable/popular ideologies ?
