Examines the particular case of Sudan, but suggests the discussion is relevant to the countries of the African Horn in general and Southern Ethiopia in particular. Pastoralists in the Horn seem to experience similar, if not identical, processes resulting from land laws promulgated by the governments in the region.Concludes that the future of the pastoralist in the Horn of Africa will depend on which realistic land tenure system the government will chose. In order for pastoral production systems to continue playing an important role in the national economies of the region, they must have the power to influence the system of governance. This is not the case at present. Marginalisation is a common feature of all the pastoral systems in the Horn today.
