Abstract

This contribution examines an international conference on West African hunters to analyze the role of intellectuals who actively work at scholarly and political functions. In the current sociopolitical context of West African states, there seems to be a great inadequacy or incompatibility between social projects and political ambitions, inasmuch as politicians use their social networks and symbolic capital to foster superficial cultural activities that exclusively benefit them.
