This issue of the APAD-Bulletin approaches the ambiguous relationship
between religion and development. The different papers analyse the ways in
which religious elites are involved in the elaboration and implementation
of ‚development‘. Insightful case studies from Nigeria, Niger, Burkina
Faso and Senegal demonstrate 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.
