|The European summer school for the anthropology of development and social dynamics is an intensive seminar for doctoral students, organized and hosted every two years by one of the participating research-institutions and universities. Since the early 1990s, the doctoral school has offered a forum of exchange to young and senior scholars from various European and non-European (mainly African) countries working on topics linked to development and social change in the countries of the Global South. The summer school is bilingual in French and English and a good understanding of both languages is required to participate.In a three-day session, a group of around 20 junior and senior researchers come together and intensively discuss a broad range of topics, defined by the research interests of the young researchers and the topics of their doctoral theses. Every doctoral candidate gets the opportunity to give an overview of his or her thesis, to present a certain chapter or to discuss particular questions.||
