Résumé
As the process of globalisation continues, pastoral nomads are increasingly experiencing changing conditions, with all due consequences for their lifestyle. This investigation aims to observe if and how restrictions on nomidisation and pastoralism contribute to the emergence of armed conflict. Through secondary case study research, the Tuareg of the central Sahara are investigated to determine the role and process of these restrictions in the four periods of rebellion that have occurred since the withdrawal from the region of the French Empire circa 1960 and until 2013. The results, focussing on Mali and Niger, suggest that although the restrictions on nomadisation are influential in the outbreak of violence, there are additional causes. Therefore, this study adds to the literature some specificity in the niche field of nomadic violence, but does not develop comprehensive theory.
