Abstract:Through a detailed case study of the workings of a local NGO in Guinea-Bissau and of how different actors play with shifting roles, the article elucidates the inadequacy of conventional binary oppositions between domination and resistance, northern powerful donors and powerless local development organizations, and between the state and African civil society. The farmers' strategies reflect their increasing disillusionment and mistrust regarding external actors and reproduce a 'moral economy of disorder' in local political culture. The author's personal entanglement in the case study highlights the challenges raised in engaged ethnography. Notes, ref., sum. in English and French. [Journal abstract]
