Les chefs peuls du Yatenga à l'épreuve du changement (Burkina Faso)

Abstract : This thesis is a contribution to the analysis of the logic of power being played around the figure of the "traditional chief". The thesis is in the specific context of Fulani Yatenga societies, a former kingdom Moaga (pl. Moose) of Burkina Faso. I showed that Fulani chiefdoms really existed from the colonial period and after having demonstrated the power relations that Fulani small groups scattered have had with local and central authorities before colonization, I revisited the "chiefdom" by showing its high historicity character and its place in the contemporary political landscape. I relied on two chiefdoms to show that it can assume two different registers: development, on one hand and Islam on the other hand.
