PANEL 5.08

Movements in Peripheral Regions and Peripheries on the Move. Changes in the Centre-Periphery Relationship in Nowadays Ethiopia.

Coordination:
Alain Gascon , University Paris 8, France;
Bezunesh Tamru, University Paris 8, France.

Eighty percent of the 21st century Ethiopians are still living above 1,800-2,000 m (one third of the national territory). However the 60s demographic revolution has led to increase fourfold its population, which probably will reach more than 170 million in 2050. So Ethiopians will leave en masse the Highlands to move down in sparsely populated peripheral regions. The contributions, which are gathered in this panel, analyse how massive population settlements in the lowlands will make an impact on agricultural production systems, on urban development, on political actors and on institutions with the help of social sciences and history.
