Dr Dannreuther and Dr Wiegratz selected to be 'Writing and Researching the Political Economy of Inequality in Africa' mentors

The inaugural British Academy-funded programme is aimed at postgraduate and early career researchers in any Development Assistance Committee country in Africa.

‘Writing and Researching the Political Economy of Inequality in Africa’ is an initiative led by Dr Sophia Price (Leeds Beckett University) and Professor Alexander Nunn (University of Derby).

The programme is designed to increase research capacity in political economy research in Africa and specifically around the topic of inequality. The initiative offers a series of workshops and mentoring for researchers interested in any area of inequality related to Africa. Participants will be able to take part in the workshops and have a 1-2-1 mentoring programme to support them to develop and publish their research.

Dr Dannreuther, Lecturer in European Political Economy, and Dr Wiegratz, Lecturer in Political Economy of Global Development, will mentor doctoral students from across the continent of Africa and give online talks as part of the programme.
