Every second or third year, APAD organises an international conference, alternately in Africa or in Europe. These conference are organised in partnership with universities and research centers and dedicated to an emerging issue.
Bringing together about 100 people, these conferences offer a space for dialogue and debate on recent research. They provide members and other involved people a chance to meet one another and exchange ideas. They allow for the valorisation of research through the APAD Journal and books.
- MIGRATIONS, DEVELOPMENT ET CITIZENSHIPS / ROSKILDE, DANEMARK / 23-25 Mai 2018
APAD 13th international conference will broaden our understanding of contemporary migrations, at various levels, and connect it to the issue of social change, development, and aid intervention, highliting the different ways by which migrants’ access or denial to services produces new practices and conceptions of citizenship.
The call for panels is open. Deadline : 15 June 2017.
