Abstract:In Chad, a basic source of conflict arises from the division between the Arabized north and a non-Arab south. However, factional splits supersede north-south polarities. The movement from ethno-regional polarization to factionalism cannot be properly grasped unless attention is given to the breakdown of state institutions. External involvement is also a crucially important dimension for grasping the roots of factionalism. Sections: The north-south cleavage: an ambiguous paradigm - The trend towards fragmentation: statelessness as a variable - The Libyan connection. Bibliogr., notes, ref.
