In South Africa

Three of the four professors visited South Africa in May, together with SAVUSA. Professor Eddy Van der Borght was unable to go due to obligations elsewhere. The programme lasted from 4 to 13 May 2009, and consisted of the following:

  • • signing of the declaration of intent between VU Vice Chancellor Lex Bouter and the Minister for Development Cooperation, Bert Koenders;
  • NRF-conference organized by the National Research Foundation (NRF), the South African equivalent of the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research;
  • • Visit to the Soccer Institute in Mafikeng by Geert Savelsbergh;
  • Workshop organized by SANPAD, with presentations by the Desmond Tutu professors on their plans relating to the themes of Youth, Sport and Reconciliation.
