Misseriya Land Conflicts: West Kordofan State, 1990-2015

The land conflicts in Misseriya have existed since the 1990s. The conflicts have been internal i.e. between the clans of the Misseriya tribe and external i.e. between the Misseriya and other tribes. Some of the causes of the conflict include: lack of resources, displacement of people due to land that is acquired for oil exploration and production and land grabbing especially in cases where people rely on traditional land ownership and lack land titles. The report therefore, provides an overview of the Misseriya tribe and explores the causes of the conflict particularly the conflict that took place in May 2014. To read the full report, Click Here.
