Sammanfattning

This chapter is about hunters’ crossing of the international boundary separating Côte d‘Ivoire and Burkina Faso, particularly focusing on how hunters occupy a politico-economic space in the midst of the civil war in Côte d'Ivoire. It presents two case-studies that highlight how economic and political relations are intertwined. In recent years, the emergence of hunters’ movements has been examined in several scholarly works, some of whom have stressed the transnational dimension of hunters’ movements. Yet, the specific bonds connecting hunters on each side of the international boundary of Burkina Faso and Côte d’Ivoire has not yet been fully understood. This is even more so since the civil war broke out in Côte d’Ivoire, in which hunters came to play a major role and which led to the current partition of the country. By looking at hunters’ movements on both sides of the international boundary between Côte d’Ivoire and Burkina Faso, and especially on how hunters’ crossing of this boundary has been critical in the context of armed conflict, the chapter demonstrates that the war in Côte d’Ivoire has provided new opportunities for hunters. More specifically, this chapter describes cultural, political and economic dimensions of hunting in the civil war and how boundary crossing has opened up a new politico-economic space for hunters. By Syna Ouattara & Sten Hagberg
