As part of their long term commitment to foster exchange between practitioners and academics, UvA and KIT jointly organize this years’ Summer Institute on Global Poverty and Inclusive Development. The Summer Institute on Global Poverty & Inclusive Development, from 22- 27 June 2014, contributes to the growing worldwide interest among academics and professionals in the causes of poverty and its alleviation.

There is an increasing urgency to understand the conditions of poverty, the dynamics of poverty, and the complexities involved in embarking upon more inclusive development trajectories. With this program, students will become familiar with the most recent approaches to poverty and inclusive development by closely interacting with internationally renowned scholars in this area.

Dr. Fred Zaal, Senior Advisor Economic Development at KIT: ‘I am excited to be one of the lecturers in this Summer Institute. It offers me a chance to share my expertise as a development specialist who spends a lot of time doing economic research in the field. In return, I learn from new approaches and current theory on inclusive development by fellow lecturers and students. I expect a very exciting exchange between theory and practice.’
