Résumé
Drawing on recent field research, (August to December 1991), conducted with Tuareg people in Imanan Canton, western Niger, this thesis will discuss changes in access to and control of land by women, men and the different social strata which constitute Tuareg societies. Legal pluralism provides the theoretical framework from which to analyze processual changes in resource relations from the pre-colonial and colonial periods to the present day. Both Islamic law and customary law are conceptualized as resources which women and men as well as the different social strata draw in an effort to secure their access to land.
