Since October 2012, and in close cooperation, the Institute for Peace and Security Studies (IPSS) at Addis Ababa University (Ethiopia) and the University of Leipzig offer a three-year interdisciplinary doctoral training programme in the field of Global and Area Studies with a special emphasis on peace and security in Africa. The programme trains junior researchers and professionals in globalisation as well as peace and security research. It qualifies them for employment, among others, in international organizations, in the field of conflict management, prevention and resolution and early warning (as well as other areas of the emerging African peace and security architecture), and as future lecturers, scholars and researchers for the rapidly expanding higher education sector in Ethiopia and its neighbouring countries.
