It is with sadness and pain that we have been informed about the loss of our colleague and friend Bréhima Kassibo, Research Directeur at the Institute of Human Sciences, Bamako, Mali.
Prof. Kassibo contributed substantially to APAD with commitment and critical spirit. Among other things he edited the thematic issue of the APAD Bulletin 14 ?La décentralisation au Mali: état des lieux? in which researchers ask pertinent questions on this institutional refoundation of Malian society. Prof. Kassibo was also a senior research fellow at the
Research Centre Point Sud in Bamako.
On behalf of APAD and myself I present our condolences to Bréhima Kassibo's family, friends and colleagues.
May he rest in peace!
