The SFB hosted several visiting scholars in the second half of 2014, who supported and complemented our current research with important new areas of focus. In September, we were pleased to welcome Girmachew Alemu Aneme (professor at the International Law and Policy Institute and the Addis Ababa University School of Law) from Ethiopia. Prof. Aneme specializes in the areas of international law and African studies, and his work strengthened these two perspectives within the SFB.
The Collaborative Research Center also welcomed Jennifer Burrell (professor of anthropology at the University at Albany / State University of New York) and Shakira Bedoya Sánchez (former PhD candidate at the Max Planck Institute for Foreign and International Criminal Law and the Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology). In addition, the SFB hosted Ellen Moodie (professor of anthropology and Latin American and Caribbean studies at the University of Illinois) in November and integrated her expertise on governance in Central America and the Caribbean into our research.
