Chronique d’une réforme foncière dans la trajectoire politique du Mali

Abstract : The reform of land management launched in 2014 in Mali comes after the crisis that just shook the country, and revives with legal revisions brought every ten-year to the land issue. The restoration of the State political credit is at stake, but its reference to the previous regime, which fell precisely in 2012, is ambiguous. At the same time: a model to be followed for arguing the Cadastre as the best expertise-based solution vis-à-vis the land concerns and the need for a new public management; a repulsive example of speculation and predation that the Malian administration is complicit in. This paper examines the way the reform has been set into a political agenda during the “post-crisis” mandate. If its impetus and financing are obviously influenced by external models circulating at a global scale, it also brings into play the endogenous constraints of legitimation and implementation faced by the Malian State. Three levels of action are considered – the institutional interplay, the minister’s personal involvement, the ordinary work lead in land offices –, each of them looking for political benefits.
