African Studies (Research) (MA)
African Studies Centre (ASC) The research master's in African Studies at Leiden University is unique in continental Europe for the interdisciplinary range of subjects offered and the variety of perspectives.
Why study African Studies (research) at Leiden University?
The two year’s research master’s programme in African Studies at Leiden University bridges the often artificially drawn boundaries between the humanities, such as history and literary studies, and the social sciences, such as anthropology, political science and economics. As a result you have the opportunity to develop in-depth knowledge about different aspects of the African continent and its peoples, at the same time you are not bound by boundary constraints of any of the more traditional disciplines focusing on Africa. Small classes ensure that you have plenty of direct contact with your lecturers and a high level of guidance and support throughout your studies.
Develop and practise your research skills
An important aspect of this programme is developing your ability to conduct original and interdisciplinary research. You will have the opportunity to spend an entire year (of which six months consists of fieldwork in Africa) to execute your own research project. This will provide you experiences into working and conducting research in Africa. You will take in-depth courses that will guide you through social theory, methodology development, and proposal writing; you will write a scientific publication, and practice your debating and presentation skills. This will enable you, upon graduation, to initiate independent PhD or policy research, advise and participate in policy development and implementation, or offer training to businesses wanting to do trade in Africa.

Seminar für Wissenschaftliche Politik, Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg Im Zuge transnationaler Herausforderungen wie Terrorismus, Entwicklungsdefizite oder regionale Konflikte, sind Entwicklung und Sicherheit zentrale Bestandteile einer Afrikapolitik externer Akteure. Während traditionell eine starke Verbindung zwischen diesen beiden Politikfeldern, ein Nexus, besteht, der insbesondere um die Frage kreist, wie viel oder ob Sicherheit für Entwicklung notwendig ist, wird dieser Nexus seit kurzer Zeit um das Politikfeld Migration ergänzt. Die Asylkrise in der Europäischen Union hat dazu geführt, dass Afrika verstärkt aus einer Migrationsperpsektive in den Blick gerät. In diesem Zusammenhang fokussiert deutsche Außenpolitik vermehrt auf die Sahel Zone und Transitstaaten von Afrikanischer Migration, aber auch die Außenpolitik der EU oder Frankreichs weisen einen solchen Fokus auf. Diese neue Zielrichtungen generieren einen "security-development-migration nexus", indem die verschiedenen Politikfelder miteinander verwoben werden.
Dieses eLearning-Angebot ist das Ergebnis eines standortübergreifenden Ringseminars der Universitäten Freiburg, Tübingen, Mainz, Frankfurt, Düsseldorf, Hamburg, Marburg und Magdeburg im Sommersemester 2018, mit dem Ziel aus der Perspektive der Friedens- und Konfliktforschung Grundlagen, Akteure und Folgen diesen Nexus in neun Modulen zu erarbeiten und kritisch zu reflektieren.
