Symposium: “Demography and the Challenge of Social Change in the African Sahel”

The symposium was part of a year-long project on the theme of Development, Security and Climate Change in the Sahel, which involves exchange and collaboration between UF, Sciences Po (France) and Université Cheikh Anta Diop (UCAD- Dakar, Senegal). Five graduate students (two from Sciences Po and three from UCAD) visited UF between Sept. 20-26 thanks to funding from the US French Embassy through the France-Florida Research Institute.

The symposium was followed by a series of workshops hosted by the Center for African Studies.
