Master and PhD Scholarships in Ethiopia - Global Studies (with a special emphasis on peace and security in Africa).
Global Studies can be understood as a combination of political, social and cultural as well as historical approaches to the study of modern and contemporary globalisation processes and the comparison of world regions.
While it is a very successful emerging research field in most parts of the world, African universities are only recently beginning to offer corresponding study programmes.
The Global and European Studies Institute (GESI) of Leipzig University (Germany) and the Institute for Peace and Security Studies (IPSS) of Addis Ababa University (Ethiopia) are jointly offering two interdisciplinary study programmes (Master and PhD) located in Addis Ababa in the field of global studies with a specific focus on peace and security on the African continent.
In both programmes, Global Studies offers the scientific basis to develop an understanding for the dynamics of peace and security in Africa. Since Africa is faced with global challenges in particular ways, the study programmes pay special attention to regional perspectives on globalisation processes and – in light of the continent’s specific contemporary challenges – to the multifaceted aspects of peace and security in Africa.
The subject of "peace and security in Africa" is integrated into the study programmes’ broader context of comparative analyses of global entanglements both historically and contemporarily.
