The Rift Valley Institute's annual field courses offer an intensive, graduate-level approach to the history, culture and political economy of three subregions: Sudan and South Sudan; the Horn of Africa; and the Great Lakes.
The courses are designed for aid workers, peacekeepers, researchers, business executives and diplomats – those living and/or working in the countries of the region and those about to start. They consist of a six-day dawn-to-dusk programme of lectures, seminars and panel discussions, led by international specialists and scholars and activists from the region.
Enough Project Somalia fellow Ken Menkhaus is Director of Studies for the Horn of Africa Course.
Dates and locations are as follows:
- Sudan and South Sudan Course, Rumbek, S. Sudan, 26 May-1 June
- Horn of Africa Course, near Mombasa, Kenya, 16-22 June
- Great Lakes Course, Bujumbura, Burundi, 7-13 July
