Abstract:The articles compiled in this special issue of the Canadian Journal of African Studies are based on contributions to the workshop 'Nomades et migrants dans l'espace Sahara-Sahel: Mobilité, ressources et développement', held in Bamako, January 2011. The articles are informed by the question of what empirical studies of different types of 'movement' in this particular geographical area can contribute to the on-going and lively discussion on 'mobility' in various academic fields. Contributions: Nomadism and mobility in the Sahara-Sahel: introduction (Elisabeth Boesen, Laurence Marfaing, Mirjam de Bruijn); De l'espace nomade à l'espace mobile en passant par l'espace du contrat: une expérience théorique (Denis Retaillé); Mobility in pastoral societies of Northern Mali: Perspectives on social and political rationales (Charles Grémont); Quelles mobilités pour quelles ressources? (Laurence Marfaing); On west African roads: everyday mobility and exchanges between Mauritania, Senegal and Mali (Armelle Choplin, Jerome Lombard); Tubali's trip: Rethinking informality in the study of West African labour migrations (Benedetta Rossi); Mobility in the Hausa language (Joseph McIntyre); De la constitution d'un territoire à sa division: l'adaptation des Ahl Bârikalla aux évolutions sociopolitiques de l'Ouest saharien (XVIIe-XXIe siècles) (Benjamin Acloque).
