Building research capacity in Rwanda

We collaborate with the University of Rwanda on a capacity building project funded by Sida.

The School of Global studies has since 2003 collaborated with the University of Rwanda on a capacity-building project funded by Sida. The project provides institutional support for the construction of sustainable, national research capacity in Rwanda, which is achieved through research training, development of a long-term research strategy, and increased research collaboration. Our main partner in cooperation is the Center for Conflict Management (CCM) at the University of Rwanda. 

The project includes:

  • support in starting and running a PhD programme in Peace, Conflict, and Security at CCM in Kigali;
  • supporting Postdoc fellows;
  • and strengthening the research capacity at CCM through joint activities such as research seminars, publications, and grant applications.
