Clémentine Rossier has alternated quantitative and qualitative approaches to study induced abortion, contraception, and fertility trends in Europe and Sub-Saharan Africa. From 2008 to 2013, she helped launch an urban demographic and health surveillance system in Burkina Faso. In 2013, she received a professorship from the Swiss National Science Foundation to investiate the slow fertility decline in sub-Saharan Africa at the University of Geneva. Today, she collaborates with the Institut National d'Etudes Démographiques in Paris on new ways to promote demographic statistics in Africa, and with the Unit of Research in Reproductive Health at the World Health Organization on the measurement of induced abortion. She also works since 2015 on family ties and well-being in Switzerland in the frame of the Swiss National Center of Competence in Research LIVES.
