Prof. Stephen Brown from the University of Ottawa (Canada), current Senior Fellow at the College, and his tandem partner Prof. Dennis Dijkzeul (Ruhr University Bochum) are holding a half-day workshop for graduate students under the theme of “Discourses and practices of development and humanitarian assistance”.

The hybrid event will allow eight master's and Ph.D. students to present their work, receive constructive feedback and build connections with their peers in Canada and Germany. The workshop's four panels address pressing issues in health and healthcare, challenges in humanitarian assistance, feminist approaches to international development, and support for refugees in Germany and Thailand.
