Université Cheikh Anta Diop, Senegal
Professor Babacar Fall is teaching at the FASTEF - School of Education of the University Cheikh Anta Diop of Dakar, Sénégal. He is the author of many publications on education and social history as well as the Coordinator of GEEP (www.geep.org) and Chair of SchoolnetAfrica (www.schoolnetafrica.org).
Professor Fall's project draws on the life histories of social and political activists to highlight the role of unions in Senegals history from 1945 to 1968. While much of the emphasis has been on political parties, the evolution of the labor market and the role of salaried workers and unions remains understated.
