14In the context of the development of Ivorian lands and regional planning, internal migrations have been reported. The Baoulé, an ethnolinguistic subgroup of the major Akan component and mainly originating from central Côte d'Ivoire, will migrate to several areas, mainly in areas favorable to perennial crops (coffee, cocoa). This migratory flow of populations towards the forest areas is not without consequence on the rural land. In Zépréguhé, village of the Sub-prefecture of Daloa, located in the center west of Côte d'Ivoire where Baoulé settled after acquisition of the lands, the cohabitation with native Bété is sometimes conflictual. The dynamics of their relationships sometimes lead to land conflicts. This article proposes a qualitative approach to identify, on the one hand, the different modes of acquisition of land and on the other hand, the reasons underlying the outbreak of land conflicts between indigenous Bété and Baoule migrants in Zépréguhé after acquisition of land by the latter.
