The present APAD Bulletin is a selection of papers presented at
the APAD 2010 Conference in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso, on
the theme „Engaging Anthropology for Development and Social
Change: Practices, Discourses and Ethics“.

Anthropological engagements face important challenges at the
interface of research and development. The different ways by
which anthropologists take on societal problems – either in their
research capacity, as development experts, as activists, or as citizen – are inscribed in a longstanding debate. In this APAD Bulletin
the authors deal with the central questions of how and under
which conditions anthropology engages with society. The papers
range from epistemological reflections and methodological queries
to the anthropology of per diem and of public health, as well
as to practical problems confronting anthropologists engaged in
development cooperation.
