Background: This submission for a Special Collection is based on a selection of contributions to the International Seminar ‘Children and family dynamics in sub-Saharan Africa’, held in Paris in October 2016 (http://slam.site.ined.fr/en/DyPE/seminar/).
Objective: The special issue focuses on family environment and child socialization in sub-Saharan Africa. A main challenge is to go beyond the traditional family-network approach, centred on the household and the biological parents, and to consider the diversity of contexts and players involved in a child’s upbringing.
