News from Feb 29, 2016

Dear Readers,

I am excited to share our latest newsletter with you, to keep you updated on events, visiting scholars, and recent developments at the SFB 700.

The Collaborative Research Center (SFB) 700 can look back at a productive 2015 – a year in which the individual projects amassed valuable empirical findings and were able to advance their research significantly. After many of our researchers spent the summer and fall conducting work in the field, they are now busy consolidating and evaluating their data.

This newsletter contains reflections on the last few months and perspectives on upcoming events and new visiting scholars. Three of our researchers will report on their fieldwork experiences in Afghanistan, Kenya, and Guatemala. Finally, we will give you an overview of the Collaborative Research Center’s latest publications and working papers.

As always, we appreciate your feedback and send you our warmest wishes for 2016. Enjoy reading!


With best regards,

Thomas Risse
Coordinator SFB 700
