After a two-year hiatus, the Rift Valley Institute will return to running annual field courses, with the first one scheduled in the summer of 2022 . Now in their seventeenth year, each course examines a different sub-region within eastern and central Africa: Sudan and South Sudan, the Horn of Africa and the Great Lakes.
The courses will 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 Great Lakes is not available this year as an annual course but can be delivered as a bespoke course upon request.
The fee for each course is USD 4,500, 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.
