Abstract:This issue of Dounia presents articles in English and in French on population and social policies, which address three major challenges: poor reproductive health, rapid population growth, and extreme poverty. In their introductory article, the two editors - Jacques B.O. Emina and David Shapiro - argue that countries in sub-Saharan Africa need integrated, holistic and evidence-based population and social policies to address these issues. Articles include: 1. Évolution de la fécondité, croissance économique et développement humain en Afrique subsaharienne (Raïmi Fassassi & Patrice Vimard); 2. L'expansion de l'éducation en Afrique annonce-t-elle sa transition démographique? (David de la Croix & Paula Gobbi); 3. The status of orphans in a northern Nigerian setting: findings from the Nahuche health and demographic surveillance system (Henry V. Doctor, Oluwatoni A. Idowu, Olatunji Alabi, & Abdulazeez Jumare); 4. Mother's education, armed conflict and child nutritional status in Congo (Jacques B.O. Emina, Ngianga-Bakwin Kandala & Yazoume Ye); 5. Old-age security in rural Senegal: the symbolic Baraka motive in Senegal (Jean-Luc Demonsant); 6. Migrants' remittances and living conditions of households at the origin: evidence from Kinshasa (Jose Mangalu Mobhe); 7. Les migrants congolais en Belgique et en Grande-Bretagne (Bernard Mumpasi Lututala); and 8. Development questions the INDEPTH network of HDSS member centres is uniquely poised to answer (Osman Sankoh and Steve Tollman). [ASC Leiden abstract]
