Cooperation with Afghanistan: The First Intake of the AMEA Programme Has Commenced

Programme Coordinators Farah Asif and Marius Brinckmann share news on the Academic Mining Education in Afghanistan (AMEA) project.


Following the series of capacity development measures for Afghanistan, and to significantly harness the mining potential of Afghanistan, a joint project called Academic Mining Education for Afghanistan (AMEA) has been designed by the DAAD and the GIZ. The project is funded by the Federal Foreign Office of Germany. In order to materialize the AMEA project, the IEE has established a collaboration between the Ruhr-University Bochum (RUB) and Afghan universities for training Afghan lecturers on the subjects of “Mining Economics and Management”, “Mining Policy and Public Administration”, and ‘International Mining Law’.

In the beginning of this co-operation, in the summer semester of 2016, the IEE invited three lecturers from the faculties of Economics, Public Administration and Law of Kabul University and trained them in the aforementioned subjects.

In the year 2017, the IEE has extended its services to the provinces in Afghanistan for training 15 more lecturers, in two groups, from various Afghan Universities. The first intake of AMEA, group I, 2017, consisting of six lecturers, has been invited by the RUB for a four-month training programme from May to August at the IEE. These lecturers were selected from the faculties of Economics and Law of Afghan Universities of Herat, Nangahar, Kandahar, and Balkh, and have started their courses.
