Abstract [en]

This paper is the result of a joint ethnographic endeavor to narrate the Burkinabe revolution of October-November 2014 on the basis of lived experiences inside and outside of the popular uprising. It ana-lyses the events that anteceded the Fall of President Blaise Com-paoré, the days of revolution, as well as the first months of the one-year political transition. The paper is based on the combination of ethnographic fieldwork of participant observation, careful monitor-ing of mass media and social media, and analysis of modern politi-cal history in Burkina Faso. Throughout the paper we particularly discuss how legality and legitimacy articulate with fundamental processes of change and continuity in a Burkina Faso in the midst of a political transition. In conclusion, we suggest that there are true potentialities to build a democracy that is both legal and legitimate.

Abstract [fr]

Ce texte est le résultat d’un projet ethnographique conjoint pour narrer la révolution burkinabè de octobre-novembre 2014 sur la base des expériences vécues au-dedans et en dehors du soulève-ment populaire. Il analyse les événements précédant la chute de Blaise Compaoré, les journées désormais historiques de la révolu-tion, ainsi que les premiers mois de la transition politique. Le texte est basé sur la combinaison de l’enquête de terrain ethnographique (ici surtout l’observation participante), le suivi de mass médias et des réseaux sociaux, et l’analyse de l’histoire politique moderne bur-kinabè. En particulier, nous discutons comment la légalité et la légi-timité s’articulent avec les processus fondamentaux du changement et de la continuité au Burkina Faso en pleine transition politique. Pour conclure, nous proposons le fait qu’il existe de vraies potentia-lités pour bâtir une démocratie à la fois légitime et légale.
