Identity and plurality. The Fulbe in Central Niger
This study is based on findings in another one on the identity of the Fulbe in Benin and Niger. By comparing the multi-ethnic situation in Northern Benin with the one in Central Niger the connection between identity and inter-ethnic exchange was to be examined. In the course of research, however, inner-ethnic relations of various Nigerian Fulbe groups increasingly came into focus. The paper is a sketch of these internal situations.
