Applied Research Seminar - Conflict and Development Track
DE004| Autumn | 6ECTS
This applied research seminar provides students following the Conflict and Development Track, in their third semester, with the opportunity to gain hands-on experience working with external partners on “real world” applied research projects. Research topics are elaborated in advance with external partners – including international organisations, bilateral cooperation agencies, NGOs and private firms based in the Geneva area. After an introduction to research methods and few sessions designed to acquire various professional skills, groups of two to four students will conduct an applied research and meet with external partners while they carry out their research project. At the end of the semester, the groups will deliver a written report, will present their research findings to partner organisations and their assigned faculty members.
