This monograph, the result of intensive field work, is a revised version of the author’s habilitation thesis with the same title. Dealing with relations between ethnic groups and their position within a nation state, this publication has at its centre the Fulani people. It gives a broad overview of their origins, retraces their paths of migration and compares their forms of interaction with other peoples across time and in different geographical settings.

Further topics of this study are recent conflicts between farmers and Fulani nomads and problems in development policies regarding the Fulani. With Nomades des Espaces Interstitiels Diallo focuses not only on local dynamics in two West African countries, but also puts them into a regional context.
