Students seeking an immersive academic experience focussing on Africa’s place in the world through the prism of the social sciences should look no further than the LSE-UCT July School which runs from 1-12 July. The LSE-UCT July School is the latest collaboration between the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) and the University of Cape Town (UCT) who became institutional partners in 2010. It will take place at the scenic UCT campus on the slopes of Table Mountain in Cape Town, South Africa.
The academic programme will combine the strengths of LSE and UCT with academics from both institutions teaching subjects such as Economics, Geography and Development Studies. Professor Thandika Mkandawire, the LSE African Chair, will lead the course The State, Democracy and Development in Africa while Professor Léonce Ndikumana of University of Massachusetts, Amhurst will be one of three teachers on After “The Hopeless Continent”: Challenges for African Economic Development since 2000.
