Best Course Studies in Africa 2017. FSD Research Internships allow participants to engage with FSD community partners in researching local issues and developing potential solutions. With community-based participatory research, the research question is defined and findings are analyzed together with the community. The goal is knowledge creation which serves to inform community action. Research Internships have a strong emphasis on community-based participatory research in order to ensure the researchers work side by side with community members. What is Community-Based Participatory Research? Community-based participatory research (CBPR) is a framework or approach for conducting research that is characterized by the relationships between the communities and researchers. This type of research is collaborative and requires partnership development, cooperation, negotiation, flexibility, and commitment to addressing local issues. CBPR works to accomplish objectives and development through empowerment and ownership. OVERVIEW All FSD Research Internships begin months before an intern's arrival. FSD site teams work with our community partners to help them identify research priorities and develop a community-based research proposal. Research interns can apply to conduct research one of these research proposals alongside one of our community partners who have agreed to host interns. Upon acceptance to the internship program, research interns are encouraged to conduct background research about the issue they will be investigating in-country as well as study participatory research methods that might be useful. When interns arrive in the field, FSD local site teams will lead an in-country orientation, providing each intern with invaluable guidance and insight that will help them throughout... [-]

[+]

Best Course Studies in Africa 2017. Located on the Atlantic Coast, Rabat is one of Morocco’s imperial cities as well as its political capital. Rabat exemplifies Morocco’s unique cultural blend of Arab, the indigenous Amazigh (Berber), and European influences. While downtown Rabat is home to the austere Parliament building and the King’s Palace, just a few blocks away is the old medina; a fortressed city with labarinth alleys, markets, shops, and restaurants. Further down the road is the UNESCO World Heritage site of the Kasbah of the Udayas and the Bou Regreg River, with some of the best views of Rabat and the neighboring city of Salé. Al-Maghrib is a language enthusiast's dream as Moroccans speak multiple languages-typically including Moroccan Arabic, Modern Standard Arabic, and French, as well as possibly an indigenous language (such as Tamazight, Tashleheit, or Tarifit), English, or Spanish. Famous for national dishes like couscous, tajine, and harira, Moroccan cuisine is nothing short of mouth-wateringly delicious. Despite the pervasiveness of Western influences, Amazigh and Arab identity continue to play a crucial role in Morocco’s traditional, yet, modern society. After achieving independence in 1956, Morocco became a constitutional monarchy and has been ruled by three successive Alaouite kings over the past 55+ years. Throughout his reign, the current king (Mohammed VI) has taken steps to reform the political, economic, and legal structures of Morocco. While the influence of the Arab Spring on this North African country is not as deep as elsewhere in the Arab world, Moroccans are... [-]
