Women IN social change:
collaborating across boundaries for the book
Researching social change requires an immersion into some of the changes under study. The presentation describes the genesis of the book and the changes the authors experienced in the process. How does a team of researchers become part of social change? This talk will set the stage for the presentations that follow.

What is social change?
This presentation asks what social change – in women’s rights, religion, migration, and law – is, and when it counts as revolutionary. We argue that a highly contextual approach is needed to capture changes that are not always immediately visible, but which nevertheless contribute to human development.

Family law reform in Algeria: national politics,
key actors, and transnational factors
This presentation analyses the transnational and national factors that shaped family law reform in Algeria between 1984 and 2005. On the national level, family law reform was part of an effort of reconciliation by providing concessions to women after the civil war. On the regional level, Algeria had become increasingly isolated from Tunisia and Morocco who had both reformed their family laws. Family law reform was a way to overcome the Algeria’s outlier status. Both the Moroccan code of 2004 and the Algerian amendments of 2005 introduced similar changes.

Dying with a clear mind: pain and symptom control at the end of life for Dutch Moroccan patients
During the palliative phase several ethical issues may arise, one of which is pain and symptom control at the end of life. On the basis of three cases published in medical journals, the religious concerns of patients and relatives will be discussed as well as the dilemma's physicians face and the compromises reached in case of divergent views on good care.
