This page gives an overview of the teaching I'm currently engaged in at LUC and the courses I have taught in the past. For more details on my research, see here; and on my general interests and background, here.


Current courses (2017-2018, Leiden University College)

  • Searching for Sustainable Livelihoods, interdisciplinary fieldcourse in East Africa (outline) - block 2
  • Institutions in Time (outline, student blog) - block 3
  • SPOC: Development Project Management (outline) - blocks 3 & 4
