The evaluations of the courses carried out have been very positive, with requests from the participants for more of such courses. Planning and conducting the courses jointly by Gulu University and Danish researchers was an integral part of the capacity development strategy. Current internal initiatives at Gulu University indicate planning to integrate these courses into existing Gulu University post-graduate programs. The themes and formats of two PhD courses held at Gulu University have subsequently been adapted and implemented at University of Southern Denmark.
