Abstract:The papers in this special issue on Mande hunters, civil society and the State reflect on the new roles that hunters are playing in West Africa's political and social affairs, in a variety of national and local settings. Most of the papers were first presented at the 2002 African Studies Association meeting in Washington, D.C., on the panel 'Mande hunters, nation-States, and civil society in contemporary West Africa'. Thomas Bassett and Joseph Hellweg focus on different aspects of hunters' roles in political and military security in Côte d'Ivoire; Sten Hagberg examines the shifting roles of hunters' associations in Burkina Faso; Mariane Ferme and Danny Hoffman reflect on hunters as combatants and the international human rights discourse in Sierra Leone and Liberia; and Karim Traoré examines an international meeting held in Bamako (Mali) in 2001 to reflect on hunters' actual, and potential, roles as knowledgeable guides for West African 'development'.
