The book consist of a collection of articles focused on two major themes, Gender and Africa. It is a tribute to Thérèse Locoh, the brilliant Africanist demographer who first introduced and developed the topic of gender issues at the French National Institute of Demography, INED. The book interlaces all of the aspects of population studies: fertility and family, health and mortality, and internal and international migration. The various authors approach the subject through the lens of the analysis of social phenomena, and in particular the analysis of the social construction of gender with regard to its implications and consequences on the African continent. However, the content goes beyond these concepts to include discussions of population modeling, since the understanding of gender relations cannot be achieved without the creation of appropriate methods of measurement and analysis.
