Over the course of the academic year, our interns produce reports in collaboration with our external partners. These reports are often used by external partners to inform policy decisions, including feeding into a House of Commons Select Committee hearing. Examples of the reports can be found below:
In 2017, Gareth Bowden (Lancaster University) and Alice Judell (Lancaster University Ghana) established the first international Richardson Institute programme at Lancaster University Ghana with funding from Lancaster University, Lancaster University Ghana, Transnational Academic Group and the Richardson Institute.
A team of nine research interns from Lancaster University Ghana designed a research methodology to answer ‘What factors lead to conflict in Ghana?’ The team was split into two fieldwork groups, one for the north of Ghana and one for the south. Both teams spent a week travelling their assigned regions, interviewing Chiefs, police, security services and government representatives, as well as conducting over 150 questionnaires with the Ghanaian public.
This report is the first Richardson Institute Internship Program Ghana publication.
Research coordinators: Gareth Bowden & Alice Judell.
