Abstract: From the Introduction: "The purpose of this study is to explain and illustrate the concept of 'fuzzy access rights' (the second section) and provide further evidence from the pastoral areas of Ethiopia using case studies (the third section). "I have used the case study approach to piece together the scattered evidence of fuzzy access rights and investigate factors associate with them. The case studies are based on the anthropological literature and on the author's fieldwork in south-eastern Ethiopia. The fieldwork was undertaken between the last week of February and mid-March 2003."
