" Crises et régulation en pays soninké (Sénégal) depuis le milieu du XIXe siècle "

Abstract : The history of the Gooy region (Senegal) since the middle of the 19th century has been characterized by recurrent food crises. If we analyse how the types of crises have evolved, along with the regulation systems and the demographic trends, we can account for the change from the "famine years" of the colonial period to the "difficult years" of our time, according to Soninke terminology. This evolution has been accompanied by the disappearance of high mortality due to crises and epidemic diseases, then by a steady demographic growth. If food crises are less acute today, it is at the cost of a new dependence on migrants' remittances.
