Antoine Kernen's comparative study of Chinese migrants in Bamako (Mali) and Dakar (Senegal) focuses on those engaged in small and medium-sized businesses. Françoise Bourdarias discusses representations of the political in relation to the interdependences between Chinese migrants and the local population in Mali. Tu T.
