The Broker thesis project

The Broker invites masters students and graduates to participate in a new project – The Broker Thesis.

The Broker Thesis is a platform where masters graduates from around the world can publish their research on international development-related issues. A selection of the best theses will be reviewed in The Broker magazine, and the full documents will be made available online. To ensure the selection of high-quality research for publication, the entries will be assessed by a reading committee consisting of eminent academics, journalists, consultants, policy makers and researchers. Members of the committee currently include Meine Pieter van Dijk, George Essegbey, John Mensah, Piet Overduin, Jan Pronk, Rudy Rabbinge and Guido Ruivenkamp.

Please send submissions to:

Good water governance

In this second report on The Broker thesis project we highlight the work of two researchers who examined water management systems in Africa. Their theses have been reviewed by Meine Pieter van Dijk of the UNESCO–IHE Institute for Water Education, Delft, and Rudy Rabbinge of Wageningen University, the Netherlands.
