Panelist

Harold Leckat Igassela

Juriste de formation et doté d’une réelle passion pour le journalisme, Harold LECKAT IGASSELA est le jeune directeur de GLOBAL MEDIA TIME, l’éditeur des sites d’information Gabon Media Time, GMTme et GMTtv. • Passionné d’écriture et du droit, en juin 2014 alors qu’il est étudiant en fin de cycle Master spécialité Droit des Contentieux de l’Université Paris XIII-Sorbonne-Cité, il crée un site d’actualité juridique dénommé “Que Dit La Loi”. De retour au Gabon, il postule à la profession d’avocat et en parallèle anime son site qui devient une référence dans le domaine du droit, puisqu’il est régulièrement invité sur les plateaux télés et radio pour s’exprimer sur des sujets d’envergures. En 2016, à quelques mois de la présidentielle, Harold LECKAT IGASSELA crée Gabon Media Time, une agence de communication et de transformation digitale après une formation de la Netscouade, un géant européen de la communication numérique. Le site d’actualité www.gabonmediatime.com est lancé le 4 juillet 2016 comme premier support pour externaliser le savoir-faire de l’Agence, avec la vocation de devenir le n°1 de l'actualité en ligne au Gabon. Ambition qu’il atteint dès 2018. Aujourd’hui, Gabon Media Time comptabilise plus de 55 000 abonnés sur sa base WhatsApp de diffusion d’informations et de publicité, une innovation que ce média a été le premier à expérimenter au Gabon et dans la sous-région. Aussi, le site d’information compte plus de 45 000 vues en moyenne par jour et plus de 238 000 abonnés sur sa page Facebook. Qui au passage est la seule page de site d'information certifiée par l’équipe de Mark Zuckerberg. En juillet 2019, Gabon Media Time devient GLOBAL MEDIA TIME. En septembre de la même année, GLOBAL MEDIA TIME s’attaque au champ libre de l’actualité People et Lifestyle en lançant GMTme, accessible à partir de l’URL www.gmtforme.com (talk to me about me), le deuxième média en ligne édité par l’Agence. À ce jour, ce petit poucet du groupe comptabilise quotidiennement un peu plus de 20 000 vues. GLOBAL MEDIA TIME compte aujourd’hui une quinzaine d’agents permanents et collaborateurs extérieurs qui travaillent d’arrache-pied pour maintenir ses médias au top dans la livraison de l’information aux publics. En février 2020, l’expérience Gabon Media Time s’est exportée vers le Congo-Brazzaville avec le lancement de Congo Media Time, le troisième média de l’Agence et plus tard de GMTforme qui sera le quatrième édité par l’Agence, toujours avec l’ambition de devenir leader dans la sous-région de la CEMAC comme première étape, avant de s’attaquer à la CEEAC et enfin à l’Afrique tout entière. Le mercredi 05 juillet 2023, le cabinet de conseil indépendant spécialisé dans la réalisation d’études socio-économiques Mays Mouissi Consulting et l’agence de communication GLOBAL MEDIA TIME, éditeur du site d’actualité Gabon Media Time respectivement dirigés par Mays Mouissi et Harold Leckat ont publié : « 105 promesses, 13 réalisations - Le bilan du second septennat d’Ali Bongo Ondimba (2016 – 2023) ». Ce rapport-bilan, d’exactement 196 pages, décline de manière exhaustive et documentée le niveau de réalisation des engagements contenus dans le projet de société « Mon engagement pour un Gabon émergent » porté par Ali Bongo Ondimba lors de l’élection présidentielle de 2016.

Je suis professeur au Département des sciences humaines et sociales de l’Université du Québec à Chicoutimi depuis 2014. Je détiens une maîtrise en travail social (mouvements sociaux et intervention communautaire) et un doctorat en anthropologie. Dans mes recherches, je m’intéresse actuellement à l’analyse des discours ainsi qu’aux réalités et contextes des relations entre allochtones et Autochtones dans les Amériques. Par le passé, je me suis également intéressé aux luttes pour les droits humains en Amérique centrale, aux luttes environnementales en milieu urbain et à l’organisation communautaire. Je suis actuellement cotitulaire de La Chaire UNESCO en transmission culturelle chez les Premiers Peuples comme dynamique de mieux-être et d’empowerment, pour laquelle je suis responsable de l’axe Nord-Sud. Je suis également membre du Groupe de recherche et d’intervention régionales (GRIR) de l’UQAC. Par ailleurs, je reconnais que ma présence en Amérique du Nord résulte de plusieurs générations de colonisation européenne, lesquelles découlent entre autres d’un colonialisme de peuplement. Toujours en cours aujourd’hui, ce projet colonial est intimement lié à la diffusion d’un modèle économique et politique générateur d’inégalités diverses. Je conçois celui-ci comme une réalité empirique aux répercussions concrètes sur les personnes et leur environnement. J’assume donc ma responsabilité en regard des transformations qui s’imposent.

Dr. O’Sullivan, an Associate Professor, specializes in comparative, international and global citizenship education. In addition to teaching in elementary and secondary schools, community colleges and universities, Dr. O’Sullivan has worked professionally and held volunteer positions in community development projects and education in numerous Latin American countries. His Master’s thesis in Political Science was an analysis of the democratically elected socialist government of Salvador Allende in Chile in the early 1970s. O’Sullivan lived in Chile during much of the Allende period. His doctoral dissertation was on the efforts in post-conflict Guatemala of the Mayan people to transform the national curriculum in that country to reflect the historical and contemporary contributions of the Indigenous population to their homeland where they constitute 50% of the population. His current research interests involve investigating the impact of International Service Learning (ISL) trips to marginal rural communities in countries of the Global South on both the Global Northern visitors and the host communities. This particular research reflects his ongoing research interest related to the values, practice and teaching of global education and global citizenship.

Elle mène également une activité d’enseignement en ingénierie de la formation à l'institut national supérieur du professorat et de l'éducation (INSPE). Ses travaux de recherches, inspirés de la pédagogie de Freire, ont été suscités par la mort massive de ressortissants d'Afrique Subsaharienne francophone dans le cadre de leurs projets d'émigration clandestine vers l'Europe et principalement les pays avec qui il a existé et/ou persiste un lien colonial, un rapport de domination coloniale. Dès lors, elle s'intéresse aux rapports de domination dans tout type de relation dans le contexte de la mondialisation accrue et des interdépendances inévitables entre les nations.
