Abstract

This paper is concerned with conflict and the operation of local networks of civic engagement in a very specific spatial context: the market place. African markets, rural and urban, are commonly significant meeting points - associational sites - for diverse ethnic and social groups: the economic and social exchange which takes place there in the ‘everyday’ is the epitome of social engagement and cooperation. But at times of tension the market place is a frequent flashpoint where conflict becomes tangible and conflagration a regular outcome.
