Are you interested in the impact of globalisation on peace and security in Africa? Would you like to study globalisation from a interdisciplinary perspective while experiencing it? Would you like to be part of an immersive cultural experience that takes you out of your comfort zone? Then the MA or PhD in Global Studies might just be the thing for you.
The Institute for Peace and Security Studies (IPSS) at Addis Ababa University and the Global and European Studies Institute (GESI) at Leipzig University now accept applications for their joint MA and PhD programmes in “Global Studies with a special emphasis on Peace and Security in Africa”.
Globalisation is affecting Africa in specific ways and has implications for security on the continent. This programme responds to the increasing demand for research on Africa’s role in the global order by being more inclusive of African students and perspectives. Global Studies is a combination of social, cultural as well as historical approaches to the study of globalisation processes. The subject of “Peace and Security in Africa” is integrated into the study programme’s broader context of comparative analyses of global entanglements. The theoretical and methodological foundations of peace and security are profoundly expanded upon by embedding them into the debate on global actors and strategies, new regionalisms and the changing position nation-states have within the changing world order.
The two-year MA and the three year PhD programme are taught in Addis Ababa and include one term at the University of Leipzig.
