The book analyses how the recent land tenure reform in
Niger, aiming at
clarification of property, caused the eruption of a massive
number of
conflicts. Through the detailed analysis of conflicts the book
displays the complex institutional structure of dispute
management and the
ambiguous nature of the rules certaining to land rights. In particular,
the book shows how competition over resources intertwine
with institutional competition over jurisdiction in rural Niger.
