Research Month Conference at MINRESI

The October 2018 Communication of the Month was massively attended by the public on Wednesday, October 24, 2018 at 1 p.m. in the MINRESI conference room in the presence of Madam Secretary General Mrs. Rébecca Madeleine Ebéllé Etamè.

Dr. Amina Djoulde Christelle, the speaker of the day, entertained the audience on the theme: “At the heart of “Oko’o Nga’a mo”: Women and peace-building in the Gbaya societies of Cameroon and the Central African Republic”. The aim was to explore the many assets of Gbaya women in building peace in society.

The teacher-researcher at the University of Ngaoundéré, lecturer in the History Department and Executive Coordinator of COREDEC (Centre de Recherche en Sciences Sociales), based in Ngaoundéré, specializes in political history, more specifically, in the study of cartoons in relation to political phenomena.

From a combinatorial perspective and based on the Oko’o Nga’a mo (women of peace), this presentation analyzes the endogenous mechanisms for building, promoting and preserving peace within the Gbaya community of Cameroon and the Central African Republic. Built around the Soré de Nga’a mo, a peace ritual belonging to the esoteric circle composed exclusively of the Oko’o Nga’a mo, the reflection explores the rationality of peace in the Gbaya cultural universe. The scientist highlights the cultural engineering of the Gbaya, which works for peace not only through its endogenous semantic/notional conception, but also through its ritualized ordering, which makes it a cardinal cultural fact. In addition to its epistemological foundation, this postulate aims to discover, legitimize and valorize the Gbaya discourse on the issue of peace, at a time when peace is the most sought-after commodity, and for reasons of applied research.

The Oko’o Nga’a mo are considered the true repositories and transmitters of historical knowledge. Although the peace initiative remains the exclusive domain of men, its implementation is essentially carried out by women, who are the appointed officiants and authorized to perform the ritual of pacification through the Soré.

Back to science 2018

Mutualizing the scientific and infrastructural capacities of the National Research and Innovation System in the face of the challenge of Cameroon’s emergence”. This is the theme chosen for this event to celebrate and showcase the National Research and Innovation System, whose activities were solemnly launched on August 8, 2018 at 10 a.m. in the conference room of the Ministry of Scientific Research and Innovation.

La rentrée scientifique is one of Dr. madeleine Tchuinté’s flagship innovations, which aims to promote the animation, coordination and control of the National Research and Innovation System, for a greater contribution to Cameroon’s emergence process by 2035.

This year’s event will focus on continuing the reforms undertaken by MINRESI over the last few years, with a view to meeting the government’s expectations. The aim is to turn science, technology and innovation into an economic instrument. Henceforth, researchers should no longer focus on knowledge, but rather develop certain competencies and interpersonal skills, the ability to meet the challenges of social transformation, and the ability to work in teams and networks.

On a completely different level, the contribution of scientific and technical innovations should make it possible to optimize human, material and infrastructural resources to improve the production, processing, distribution and consumption of products resulting from research.

Presiding over the ceremony in place of the Minister, who was unable to attend, MINRESI Inspector No. 1 Helen Ntonifor invited all commission members to work together as a team, in order to make the ceremony more successful than in the past.

The new academic year for research and innovation will feature a procession of the various members of the research corps, an inaugural lecture, a keynote speech by the Minister of Scientific Research and Innovation, a solemn presentation of researchers promoted to higher rank, and the celebration of an eminent researcher whose research work has made or is making a decisive contribution to national development.
