SLE overseas projects

This series of studies is the result of the SLE's overseas projects, carried out as part of the graduate study programme in 'International Cooperation for Sustainable Development'. These studies are commissioned by development organisations, and carried out in interdisciplinary teams under the supervision of an experienced team leader.

Media projects

Within the frame of the Discussion Days on development cooperation or during the SLE stuy projects abroad, various media projects are being developed. These audiovisual media usually summarise the most important findings or explain specific aspects more in detail.

SLE Handbooks

In some cases the experiences and results of the SLE Overseas Studies are published as Handbooks which find use in other projects.
