Land tenure and migration, by Mahamadou Zongo

Migration is mostly seen through
the media exposure of conflicts
between natives and migrants.
Yet, social relationships between
migrants and natives go well
beyond conflicts and ethnicity to
eventually generate new solidarity
and interdependency networks
at the local level. This brief
analyzes the land tenure
dimension of migrations in rural
areas, especially accommodation
and integration mechanisms,
as well as emerging strategies.
It highlights the local changes of
which both natives and migrants
are the main stakeholders.
