Abstract:This issue addresses the recent events in Guinea and the ways its population is trying to make the best out of this seemingly permanent state of emergency. These efforts will be discussed on various scales, and against the background of different research traditions, both in terms of disciplines and in terms of the authors' origins. In order to bridge the gap between Anglophone and Francophone academia, several articles of this edition were written in French. Contributions: Guinea: spearhead of change or eternal maverick? (Johannes Knierzinger, Michelle Engeler and Carole Ammann); Political crisis and ECOWAS-mediated transition in Guinea (Mohamed Saliou Camara); Everyday politics: market women and the local government in Kankan, Guinea (Carole Ammann); Being young in the 'Guinée Forestière': members of youth associations as political entrepreneurs (Michelle Engeler); Une gouvernance locale à l'épreuve du temps: politiques nationales, pouvoirs locaux et stratégies des miniers en Guinée (Pascal Rey); 'Il faut être là où l'or sort !' De l'itinérance temporaire au maintien d'un mode de vie mobile chez les orpailleurs de Haute Guinée (Matthieu Bolay); Fria in Guinea: a dismissed bauxite town (Johannes Knierzinger).
