In June and July, the Rift Valley Institute will hold the 2019 annual field courses in Kenya. Now in their sixteenth year, each course examines a different sub-region within eastern and central Africa: Sudan and South Sudan, the Great Lakes and the Horn of Africa. They offer a dawn-to-dusk programme of lectures, seminars, panel discussions and debates. Bringing together new research, fresh analysis, established and emerging experts, the courses consider current political and development challenges in their historical, social and economic context. The courses are designed for diplomats, development practitioners, researchers and the private sector—both those living and working in the region or those about to start. The fee for each course is USD4,250, payable in advance. If you would like to participate in an RVI field course, you can apply online now. Applications are considered in order of receipt.
