Agreement on Academic Co-operation with the UNIMA Was Signed!

One of the goals of the Development Research Division of the South African-German Centre for Development Research and Criminal Justice is to establish new co-operations with universities in Sub-Sahara Africa outside South Africa itself for strengthening the regional impact of the centre activities.

For this purpose a co-operation workshop took place in October 2009 in Zomba / Malawi together with colleagues of the Chancellor College of the University of Malawi where a number of fields for future co-operation activities have been identified.

Now we are glad to announce, that the trilateral "Agreement on Academic Co-operation between the Ruhr- Universität Bochum, the University of the Western Cape and the University of Malawi was signe by all of the above mentioned parties. Based on this agreement the University of Malawi will become part of the centre activities. As one of the fist measures based on the new agreement, students of the Economics Department of the Chancellor Colleague will have the opportunity to take part in selected Master modules offered at the centre.

We consider this agreement as the first step of establishing a network of co-operating universities in the Sub-Saharan Region.
