La libération autoritaire des terres de l'Ouest. Pratiques étatiques et légitimations du cadastrage dans l'Éthiopie contemporaine

Abstract : For the last fifteen years, the Ethiopian government has been implementing the registration of peasants’ land rights in rural areas. It is supported in its task by development projects funded by foreign agencies that, through their daily activities, their conception of the cadastre and the ideological tools they spread, take part in the legitimisation of state practices. Nevertheless, land registration serves a vast “land liberation” implemented by the Ethiopian government. This liberation of land boils down to the eviction and forced displacement of ethnically selected populations, in order to transfer their land to private investors. By doing so, the state combines the pursuit of economic interest with the reinforcement of a strong political control over the peasantry. This article seeks to advance an understanding of the many legitimisation processes surrounding these practices.
