Abstract

Our research aims to analyze the dynamics of the conceptions and practices of the space of nomadic tribes in Algeria. The starting hypothesis favored the a priori distinction of a nomadic spatiality, marked by an ephemeral habitat made up of tents with seasonal mobility, linked to pastoralism and caravan activity and without fixed territorial ties - opposing a semi- nomadic or sedentary marked by permanent permanent housing, linked to irrigated gardening and access to services. As well as the brutal transformation of a nomadic way of life towards a sedentary way of life offers the example of a relationship to space and a complex, plural and moving territorial dynamic, prohibiting sharp distinctions. However, there is certainly a progressive trend towards sedentarization.
