Les racines agraires des insurrections ouest-africaines. Une comparaison Côte d'Ivoire-Sierra Leone

Abstract : What is the weight of agrarian issues in recent civil wars in West Africa ? A comparison between two regions of countries in conflict (West Central Côte d‘Ivoire and Eastern Sierra Leone) indicates that the youth who took part to the war belong to groups that have been marginalised in the local agrarian institutions. In Côte d’Ivoire youth militia targeted allochtonous migrant groups, in an attempt to uphold a lineage-based social order, while in Sierra Leone a comparable group of young fighters sought to overturn it. These variations are analysed with reference to differences in the lineage system of these societies and the history of agrarian change.
