Title:Intergenerational conflict among the Mossi: father and son
Author:Skinner, E.P.ISNI
Periodical:Journal of Conflict Resolution
Geographic term:Burkina Faso
generation conflicts
Abstract:The relations between generations and those between fathers and sons are social relations and conditioned by the social structure and the cultural system within which they take place. Any serious attempt to understand these relationships must be viewed against the background of particular socio-cultural systems. The author analyzes a pattern of conflict between father and son among the Mossi as a function of their socio-cultural system. He shows not only how the social structure of Mossi society builds and maintains these relationships, but how they support rather than impair the socio-cultural continuity of the system. References.
