Welcome to the website of APAD, the Euro-African Association for the Anthropology of Social Change and Development. APAD is a network promoting dialogue between African and European researchers in the social sciences as well as with developments agents. Initially devoted to the empirical studies of interactions brought about by development, APAD’s approach has evolved towards research regarding social change on the African continent in its broadest sense.

Nous avons la douleur de vous informer du décès d’Hadiza Moussa, enseignante à l’Université Abdou Moumouni de Niamey, et chercheuse au Lasdel, dans un accident de voiture au Niger.

Hadiza avait publié récemment « Entre absence et refus d’enfant, socio-anthropologie de la gestion de la fécondité féminine à Niamey, Niger » et coordonnait un programme de recherche sur la santé sexuelle et reproductive des jeunes au Niger. Elle avait participé au colloque APAD 2013 et venait d’être élue membre du bureau de l’APAD.

C'est une douleur pour nous tous et une grande perte pour le LASDEL, l'APAD, la recherche africaine en sciences sociales.

Tout le bureau de l’APAD présente toutes ses condoléances à sa famille et à ses collègues et amis du LASDEL.
 

 

 

We are very sad to inform you that our colleague Hadiza Moussa, assistant professor at Université Abdou Moumouni de Niamey and researcher at LASDEL, has died in a car crash in Niger.
Hadiza had recently published an anthropology of women's fertility in Niger entitled « Entre absence et refus d’enfant, socio-anthropologie de la gestion de la fécondité féminine à Niamey, Niger ». She was the coordinator for a research project on yong people's sexual and reproductive health. Hadiza was just recently elected to APAD's bureau,
It is painful for all of us and a big loss for LASDEL, APAD and for the social sciences in Africa.
The APAD bureau would like to present our condolences to her family, colleagues and friends.
