July 23-26, Gothenburg
Sub-Saharan Africa Social Institutions Workshop
GLD hosted the 'Sub Saharan Africa Social Institutions Workshop' on July 23-26. The workshop aimed to prepare for the implementation of our upcoming study in Kenya, Malawi, Tanzania and Zambia. It was an essential step in working to ensure consistent implementation of the study across Tanzania, Kenya, Malawi, and Zambia, and also gave the team an opportunity to engage in detailed, constructive discussion over the focus group and survey instruments.
Participants included the core GLD team: Nesrine Ben Brahim (researcher), Ruth Carlitz (post-doctoral research fellow), Josephine G. Gatua (post-doctoral research fellow), Felix Hartmann (PhD candidate), Kristen Kao (post-doctoral research fellow), Ellen Lust (director), Sebastian Nickel (data scientist), and Dalila Sabanic (program manager). We were joined by collaborators Boniface Dulani (IPOR), Adam Harris (UCL), Pierre Landry (UHK), Anna Persson (Gothenburg) and Marwa Shalaby (Gothenburg), as well as implementing partners Fison Mujenja from Zambia, John Tengatenga from Malawi, and Marie Mallet from EDI, working on Tanzania.
Special thanks to our program coordinator, Sara Kenney, and interns, Bruna de Castro and Michael Stam for excellent work preparing for and assisting with the workshop. It was an intense and productive workshop!
