IPPA supports the APAD conference 2015 on public policy

The Euro-African Association for the Anthropology of Social Change and Development (APAD) seeks to advance scientific exchanges as well as dialogue with development actors on issues of social change and development, in Africa and elsewhere.

The 2015 APAD conference will take place in Cotonou (Benin), 17 to 20 November. It aims to examine the current arrangements of the production and implementation of public action in countries ‘under an aid regime’, where aid money and institutions play a strong role. Around 120 communications will be presented, based on in-depth empirical research in various public action sectors. For more information, see

"The fabrication of public action in countries "under an aid regime", stakeholders, processes, negociations"
