Brice Arsène Mankou

Positions held

2023-2024 Invited researcher(s),


Brice Arsène MANKOU is a lecturer at the University of Rouen Normandy, a lecturer at Sciences Po, Reims Campus, an associate researcher at the Laboratory of Social Dynamics (DYSOLAB), University of Rouen Normandy, and a member of the reading committee of the international journal Les Cedimes.

His research initially led him to defend a Doctoral thesis in Sociology on the “Cybermarital Migration” of Cameroonian women at the University of Lille in 2011.

Brice conducts his research by drawing on the diverse and varied forms of mobility accentuated by information and communication technologies (ICT).

A key challenge of his work is to measure the impact of ICT on what has come to be called the globalized migrations of the 21st century, which make migrants ‘cosmo citizens’ (Mbonda, 2010). Today, the use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) by migrants is certainly part of modernity. But how do we transition from ‘Homo Migratus’ to ‘Homo Cybernatus’ (Dewitte,2002) today? His research addresses issues both communicational and migratory. They question the use of ICT by migrants and the way they construct a digital identity through the connected objects of migration. A focus is on the cyber migratory strategies of African women and the way they construct migratory projects in the era of globalization and the development of ICT.

His research project entitled “Ethics of the French media in the treatment of racial, colonial, and migratory facts” will be conducted at the CRÉ from February 24 to May 31, 2024. During his stay, Brice will focus on the following subjects:

  • Rights of foreign patients in France: what ethics for the abolition of State medical aid?
  • The Olympics and immigration law in France: the boundaries of sporting inhospitality and the rejection of the other.
  • Colonization and Immigration: what ethical consequences?
  • Black soldiers in the victory of the two world wars: an analysis of the role of soldiers from Africa in the commemoration of the 79th anniversary of the Normandy landings.
