The Bulletin de l’APAD is a bilingual, French and English publication by the Association euro-africaine pour l’anthropologie du changement social et du développement. It is primarily a tool stimulating research within the association’s network, and sets out to be a forum for intellectual debate and a vector for academic information. The Bulletin publishes empirical research into the social processes underlying transformations in development structures and public domains in Africa. Since 2013, the Bulletin de l'APAD becomes Anthropologie et Développement.

The journal ceased publishing at Issue 34-36 of 2012.

Engaging anthropology for development and social change
Edited by Sten Hagberg and Fatoumata Ouattara

The current triple issue of APAD Bulletin brings together a selection of papers presented at the APAD Conference 20-23 January 2010 in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso. The theme of the conference was “Engaging Anthropology for Development and Social Change: Practices, Discourses and Ethics”. As conference conveners we would like to express our deepest thanks to all actors and institutions that supported the conference: Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida), Danish International Development Agency (DANIDA), Vlaamse Interuniversitaire Raad (VLIR), Institut de Recherche pour le Développement (IRD), Bobo-Dioulasso Polytechnical University, Ouagadougou University, Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique et Technologique (CNRST), Uppsala University, Université de Montréal, African Studies Centre Leiden and Katolieke Universiteit Leuven.

The conference was supported by the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research of Burkina Faso. And last but never least we would like to thank colleagues and friends (you know who you are!) in the organisation committee of the APAD 2010 OUAGA. Bravo! A special thanks to our close, daily collaborators Bérénice Ouattara and Gabriella Körling.

The upcoming APAD conference in Montpellier, France, 13-15 June 2013 will follow up the Ouagadougou conference. In Montpellier, the theme is “Fieldwork relations in the context of Development or Emergency: Access, risks, knowledge, restitutions”.

The APAD Bulletin is produced at the Department of Cultural Anthropology & Ethnology, Uppsala University. We welcome proposals of special issues, as well as individual papers, to be published in our journal.
