This summer school will provide early career researchers with training to enhance their theoretical knowledge and jointly explore the conceptual potential of Future Studies, particularly in relation to the thematic focus of the CRC. It will also provide a platform for mutual sharing of ideas, expertise and experiences.
The transformation of rural Africa will be explored by building on wider debates on anticipatory politics to engage with the ways in which global policy dynamics impact on socio-ecological transformations. In addition, in anticipation of environmental dynamics in this region, the summer school will explore how land-use change as well as changes in the management of natural resources are being anticipated and integrated into both community-based and state-run projects, national plans and development programs.
