The activities of the GSG concern the three main areas of its operation, namely education, research promotion, and communication and public activities. Detailed information can be found under the various chapters of this website. We assisted in the development, and now coordinate, the Master programme Humanitarian Assistance NOHA, the Minor programme in Development Studies, and various exchange of specialisation programmes, such as the Coimbra Group Development Master Initiative – a European exchange network -, and exchanges with Uppsala University. Many individual students also consult us for finding internships and Masters thesis research options in developing countries.
In the field of research, we bring together and coordinate several interdisciplinary research groups and assist in organising events, from hosting individual guests to organising large scale international conferences. Linking researchers who otherwise would not have collaborated is one of the great added values the GSG can create. We also frequently assist faculty in writing research proposals, tenders submissions and in several cases manage the resulting projects (see chapter Research on this site).
In communication and representation the GSG has a great task in international and national networking for our University of Groningen stakeholders and our alumni. We link with relevant University of Groningen group- and individual research and programmes via our website. We also represent the university in international communities like that of NOHA / Humanitarian Net, the European Coimbra Group and are member of a number of international networks like EADI, 3IE and e-MFP (the European Microfinance Platform). We publish a Research Report Series and a Dissertation Series. (see on this site under ‘publications’)
