Neither Segmentary, nor Centralized: the Socio-political Organisation of a Nomadic Society (Tuaregs) beyond Categories

Abstract : The patterns of the Tuareg sociopolitical organisation combine several principles which are generally deemed incompatible in current anthropological theories. How can one capture realities which defeat classical analytical categories? The aim of this paper will be to describe and analyse the workings of the Tuareg political system in the early XXth century, its various manifestations and transformations during the anticolonial war.
