Obituary-Prof. John Oyaro Oucho

Obituary – Prof. John Oyaro Oucho, Former Council Member of UAPS 

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing away of Prof. John Oyaro Oucho on August 5th 2017 in Nairobi, Kenya. Prof Oucho was one of the founding members of UAPS and Secretary General of the Union; he also served on a number of committees especially on migration.

Prof. John Oucho is a renowned scholar of migration and population studies who has served on several advisory boards, consulted with numerous international institutions and published widely with exceptional contributions to policy on urbanization, migration and related issues. Prior to his death, Prof. John Oucho was based at the Population Studies and Research Institute, University of Nairobi.

This is a great loss to African Migration Scholarship and Prof. John Oucho will be greatly missed. On behalf of all UAPS members, the UAPS council extends its deepest sympathies to the family and colleagues of Prof. John Oucho.
