A small number of seats are still available for UCT students to participate in the forthcoming Afrobarometer Summer School, 22 November to 17 December.

Participants will take a small number of intensive modules that will run for the first three weeks of the School.  The courses cover Social Statistics, Research Design, Presidents in Africa, Parties and Elections in Africa, Governance in Africa, and Ethnicity in Africa.  Using Afrobarometer data, participants will write an evidence based paper related to one of the substantive courses.  The fourth week of the Summer School will be devoted to finishing the paper, which will be presented publicly on the last day.
