Student Highlights 

1

IBEI student Julián Andrés Villarreal Solano obtains
the REEDES Award to the Best Master’s Final Dissertation on Development Studies

 

For the third year in a row, the 2020 REEDES (Spanish Network of Development Studies) Award to the Best Master’s Final Dissertation in Development Studies was adjudged to an IBEI student.
The student Julián Andrés Villarreal Solano was awarded for his project ‘Citizen visible audits on the execution of development projects in Colombia: Do they make a difference?’ in the framework of the IBEI Master’s in International Development during the course 2018-19.


The dissertation evaluates the impact of citizen audits in Colombia between 2012 and 2020, seeking to investigate whether the mechanism favors the provision of services, and, consequently, produces a positive effect on the execution of development projects. It is a work with a micro, empirical orientation, and focused on a middle income country and that highlights the importance of local particularities and institutional capacities as determining factors in the execution of projects. The methodological solidity of the work and the good writing are also highlighted.

IBEI student Andréane Williams wins the third place in the IEMed Aula Mediterrània Best Master’s
Thesis Awards 

 

Andréane Williams, student of the Master’s in International Relations, was awarded the third prize for her work “Micro-level motivations of combatants in inter-communal conflicts.


A look into the cases of Jabal Mohsen and Bab al Tabbaneh”. In the work, Williams studies community violence between these two neighborhoods in the Lebanese city of Tripoli based on interviews with 13 ex-combatants. It is of special interest, according to the jury, “for its analysis of the factors that generate conflicts between groups in the same place” and because “it constitutes an in-depth exploration of the circumstances that condition personal involvement in conflicts of this kind.” The Awards are part of the Aula Mediterrània interuniversity programme, which the IEMed has been co-organizing with different master’s degrees from Catalan universities that are dedicated to the study of different disciplines of the Mediterranean environment.

Financial Aid and Scholarships

IBEI, in collaboration with other institutions, offers the possibility
to apply for scholarships that partially or completely cover the tuition fees for the master’s programmes.
