Summer School 2013: The Politics and Economics of Aid
From 24 June - 5 July 2013, the University of Antwerp (BE), Universidad de Cantabria (ES), University of Birmingham (UK), Erasmus University Rotterdam (NL), University of Florence (IT) and the University of Olomouc (CZ) jointly organise the first Summer School on the Politics and Economics of Aid in Antwerp, in cooperation with EADI.
The primary objective of the programme is to support ongoing research on the political, economic and institutional aspects of development cooperation (aid) and aid effectiveness. This research may take place in university settings (such as PhD research), but also in policy oriented settings such as NGOs, think tanks, aid agencies, etc. Next, the programme wants to contribute to the creation of a sustainable research network on aid so as to enable knowledge exchange on the topic of aid effectiveness, and cross fertilization between academic and policy oriented arenas of research.
Application: Until 01/02/2013 for invited PhD students, Erasmus IP and 01/05/2013 for other participants. The summer school is an Erasmus Life Long Learning Intensive Programme.
