Annual Summer School


All doctoral researchers are offered specific training through annual method workshops and summer schools which will serve as a platform to exchange information on the implementation of individual PhD projects and other projects conducted by junior scholars. 

The annual summer school will provide an opportunity for doctoral researchers and junior faculty to present their work-in-progress in a context where they are facing senior academics from different disciplines and their own peer group, both German and African. 

Three summer schools will be held in Germany, i.e. at the universities of Halle, Bayreuth and Leipzig. And another three summer schools will be held in Africa, for logistical reasons back-to-back with the thematic conferences, i.e. in Maputo, Bamako and Addis Ababa. 

The maximum number of young researchers to attend a summer school in Africa is 25.

Summer Schools

In 2012, the summer school took place in Maputo, Mozambique, from 1-7 October.

The last one was held in Halle in September 2013. 

The next summer school will be organized in Halle, from 30 June - 6 July 2014.
