Abstract:This issue of 'APAD Bulletin' explores the ambiguous relationship between religion and development, particularly Christian and Muslim organizations involved in development policy and practice in different West African countries. The papers analyse the ways in which religious elites are involved in the elaboration and implementation of 'development'. Case studies from Nigeria, Niger, Burkina Faso and Senegal illustrate how religious elites may collaborate with other development actors, such as the State, or, on the contrary, present themselves as competitors and alternatives in the development arena. The introduction, by Mayke Kaag et Maud Saint-Lary, is in English and French: Nouvelles visibilités de la religion dans l'arène du développement: l'implication des élites chrétiennes et musulmanes dans les politiques publiques en Afrique / The new visibility of religion in the development arena: Christian and Muslim elites' engagement with public policies in Africa. Of the issue's four contributions, two are in English and two are in French: Nasir Mohammed Baba, Islamic schools, the ulama, and the State in the educational development of Northern Nigeria - Abdoulaye Sounaye, Doing development the Islamic way in contemporary Niger - Katrin Langewiesche, Le dialogue interreligieux au service du développement: élites religieuses et santé publique au Burkina Faso - Muriel Gomez-Perez, Des élites musulmanes sénégalaises dans l'action sociale: des expériences de partenariats et de solidarités.
