Access and Authority Nexus in Farmer-Herder Conflicts (AAN) Project

The Access and Authority Nexus in Farmer-Herder Conflicts (AAN) Project investigates the dynamic processes of formation and erosion of access, identities, and authority in spatial and historical perspectives. Through a theoretical lens guided by political ecology, and in particular the concepts of frontiers and territorialization, it understands the conflict as a dynamic process whereby people seek access and try to legitimize their claims as property.
