Abstract:Based on fieldwork largely collected during the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) interim period by Sudanese and European researchers, this volume sheds light on the dynamics of change and the relationship between microscale and macroscale processes which took place in Sudan between the 1980s and the independence of South Sudan in 2011. Contributors' various disciplinary approaches -socio-anthropological, geographical, political, historical, linguistic- focus on the general issue of 'access to resources.' The book analyzes major transformations which affected Sudan in the framework of globalization, including land and urban issues; water management; 'new' actors and 'new conflicts'; and language, identity, and ideology.' Chapters: Old-timers and newcomers in Al-?al?a: dynamics of land allocation in an urban periphery (Munzoul A.M. Assal); Urban agriculture facing land pressure in greater Khartoum: the case of new real estate projects in Tuti and Abu Se?id (Alice Franck); Access strategies to economic and social resources among recent migrants on the outskirts of Khartoum: the example of Bawga Al-Sharig (François Ireton); Contested land rights and ethnic conflict in Mornei (West Darfur): scarcity of resources or crises of governance?
