Newsletter 34

This year’s winter edition of the IEE newsletter takes a look back at exciting six months at the IEE. We are happy to report on the start of our new EU-funded European Joint Doctorate programme ADAPTED and about the first experiences of our four new PhD students.

Further, this edition comprises a variety of reports on our different programmes including the MADM, the PhD IDS and the South African-German Centre for Development Research. Additionally, two of our MADM students tell about their field research experiences during the ongoing Corona crises, Setonji Ogunbiyi reflects on his nomination for the “Tor des Monats” and Timeela Manandhar reports on the working meeting of the German Partnership for Sustainable Textiles. We are especially pleased to welcome six new faces at the IEE.

Many thanks for your continued interest in our activities! Enjoy the read! We wish all our readers Happy Holidays!
