Here’s an interactive map of our location.
As an anthropologist and community researcher, I have been fascinated by your approach in assessing community needs. I would like to ask if there are any possibilities for Expat researchers and anthropologists to join your team and collaborate with your projects in future?
Thank you and best regards
My name is Isabella Hol and I am currently a 1st year Masterstudent in Landscape architecture at Wageningen University. At this moment I am thinking a lot about possible thesis topics and what I actually want to do. It is a difficult choise because I feel like it needs to be a good one since I will be working on it for a long time. The thing I do feel more and more passionate about is to do something urgent.
I liked the design studios we had so far but I did miss some urgence in these problems, I often missed the feeling that I truely contributed to people’s lifes. The first time I felt enthousiasm for a thesis topic was when I read about the research of Robert Kruijt in refugy camp Zaatari. He tried to find ways to implement nature/orchards into
this camp together with an interactive workshop together with inhabitants (mainly children) in the camp. This workshop got a lot of attention and later on appeared to influence the people’s life in the camps. I am truly touched and motivated by this topic of the ordening of refugee camps, of them becoming new cities, the involvement and influence of nature in these places etc. and therefore very much would like to do my research in this field.
When searching the web I came to see your website and your vision appeals a lot to me. Therefore I very much hope you might have some ideas or even research for me on which I could work. Every input is welcome to me and I would very much like to do fieldwork in a refugee camp where these kind of implementations are asked for.
I very much hope to hear soon from you,
