The Bielefeld University Society (UGBi) awarded the prizes for the best doctoral theses at Bielefeld University on 18 April. BGHS alumna Katrin Weible also received an award for her doctoral thesis.
In her doctoral thesis "Social citizenship for 'the poor'? Large N data construction, conceptualisation, and comparative analysis of social cash transfers across the global South", Katrin Weible addressed the question of what programmes similar to our social assistance, which have also been introduced in many developing and emerging countries since the 2000s, contribute to the social protection of poor and vulnerable groups. She will soon be taking up a position as a consultant at the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, advising the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development on social protection.
The BGHS congratulates very warmly!
