IEE Newsletter No. 27

IEE News No 27.jpg

This year’s summer edition of the IEE newsletter comprises several contributions reporting on research activities at the Institute – including an update on the Urban Food Plus and MERCUR projects, as well as reports on the Joint PhD programme with the Institute of Social Studies and research stays for individual PhD projects. We hope that, next to reports on recent activities in our other programmes, these contributions set the tone for the 7th PhD Conference on International Development that the IEE is happy to host this November.
