It offers services that range from a graduate study programme and advanced training courses for international specialists in Berlin to practice-oriented research and advisory services to development organisations and universities. With its wealth of experience and close links with the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, SLE guarantees academically sound concepts and methods, empirically saturated analyses, and practice-oriented tools and consultancy products.
