Conference: Displacements in Ethiopia, Addis Ababa, April 2018

COMPTE-RENDU DE COLLOQUE / CONFERENCE REPORT

Displacements in Ethiopia: Report of the conference organized by the French Center in 2018 

By Anais Maro & Constance Perrin-Joly

 

The 2018 SCA Biennial Meeting, cosponsored by the Society for Visual Anthropology,  was an innovative conference talking about displacements all over the world without any movement of the participants and speakers. 1,300 people had participated from over 40 countries, screening video panels within local nodes for half of them. According to the organizers, the virtual platform saved more than 425 tons of carbon emissions, as much as taking 11,500 cars off the road for three days.

In this context, the 20th of April 2018, the French Center for Ethiopian Studies has organized a local node hosting 40 people at the Bellevue Hotel, coming from Ethiopian Universities, United Nations, African Union, or NGOs.
