PhD IDS: PhD Workshop at the Lebanese American University Beirut, Lebanon

PhD IDS students following the German-Arab Joint Research, Training and Networking Programme participated in a workshop at the IEE’s partner university in Beirut.

For the second time, the IEE was invited as guests at the Lebanese American University (LAU) in Beirut. Together with its partner at the Department of Social Science, the IEE co-organised the PhD workshop, which took place from 2 – 6 October 2017. As part of the workshop, the IEE’s PhD students presented their research progress to their peers and senior fellows. The presentations were followed by two days of working groups, where PhD students and their supervisors had in-depth discussions on a wide range of research-related issues.

The workshop was part of the German-Arab Joint Research, Training, and Networking Programme. This programme brings together six PhD students from Lebanon, Palestine, Syria and Germany, working on topics related to the conflict in Syria. The students approach their research from different academic disciplines, including Economics, Political Science, Sociology and International Law.
