Programme 2012-2013

Due to the current political crisis in Mali and a travel warning issued by the German Ministry of Foreign Affairs, we were unfortunately not be able to host the Programme Point Sud 2012-2013 in Bamako. Instead, we expanded the programme to Ouagadougou (Burkina Faso) and Dakar (Senegal) in order to sustain this platform for dialog between scholars from Germany, Africa and the world. This was made possible through the unconditional commitment by the German Research Foundation (DFG) and the Goethe-University of Frankfurt/Main. We are most grateful for their ongoing support.
