With funding from Swedish Research Council, the Institute of Statistical, Social and Economic Research (ISSER), in collaboration with the School of Graduate Studies, University of Ghana, the universities of Lund, Gothenburg, and Uppsala, is organizing a Methodology and Field Studies in Development Research School for doctoral researchers in Africa and Sweden. The research school deals with sustainable development and poverty reduction in low-income countries, with a particular focus on aspects of governance, power, and inequality. The research school aims at contributing to high-quality and boundary-crossing doctoral research in the focus area by equipping students with cutting-edge methodological grounding to inform their research. The course aims to enhance doctoral researchers’ knowledge of research methodology, particularly in studying related topics of Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).
The five-day programme to be held in Sogakope, Ghana, from August 5th - 9th, 2022 will expose graduate students to research methodologies to enhance scientific inquiry. It will also foster participants' understanding of the importance of research methodological choices in development research.
