SUMMARY

This book analyzes the complex interplay between livelihood practices in northern Burkina Faso in western Africa and diverse processes of geographic mobility, including massive migration by Moose to the south and west of the country and to the Ivory Coast. Supported by extensive ethnographic data it is demonstrated how the flexibility of land tenure arrangements allows for and is fuelled by geographic mobility; how the meaning of migration and the way it is embedded in social organization changed over the last century; and how differential accumulation of cattle by migrants strains relations among Moose farmers and complicates the latter relations with Fulbe herdsmen.Breusers, Mark is the author of 'On the Move Mobility, Land Use and Livelihood Practices on the Central Plateau in Burkina Faso' with ISBN 9783825839413 and ISBN 3825839419.
