Course Description

Africa has a central role to play in developing solutions to the global challenges of the next decades. While the African continent has experienced considerable economic and demographic growth, urbanization and development of digital technologies, on the other hand, challenges have emerged such as climate change, food insecurity, migration, disputed governance of resources, violent extremism, political instability and inequality. The Seasonal School will introduce participants to a transdisciplinary approach, drawn from the fields of political science, international law, agriculture, political economy, management and health, that will provide integrated knowledge, methodologies and tools to answer the questions that will increasingly guide international research and practice on sustainable development issues in Africa.
