Abstract:This dissertation describes the sensitive issue of the contemporary emancipation trajectories of agropastoralist Fulbe slave descendants in central Mali. It explores how they are dealing with hierarchies they inherited from past master-slave relations, focusing on the relational dynamics between members of a network of migrants. The importance of mobility to identity is explored by analysing the tensions that exist among migrants to reproduce or change hierarchical relations in post-slavery societies. [Book abstract]
