Abstract:

Senegal has a long cultural tradition of solidarity and sharing, which is even reflected in its name. ‘Senegal’, although said to be derived from the Portuguese explorers of the 15th century, was taken up in the indigenous Wolof language as ‘Sunugal’, which means ‘our boat’. Even today, this boat metaphor is frequently invoked by politicians and opinion formers as a call to unity and working together, to keep the country ‘afloat’.
