This book analyses the complex interplay between livelihood
practices in northern Burkina Faso and diverse processes of
geographic mobility, among which 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 actors 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.
