In May and June, the Rift Valley Institute will hold the 2018 annual field courses in Sagana, Kenya. Now in their fifteenth year, each course examines a different sub-region within eastern and Central Africa: Sudan and South Sudan, the Great Lakes and the Horn of Africa. They 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 Sudan and South Sudan Course will take place from 20-25 May and will examine key themes of society, economy and politics in both countries at present as well as in their near and distant past.
The Co-Directors of Studies for the course will be Magdi el-Gizouli and Nicki Kindersley. They will be joined by a team of leading experts.
