RVI's three field courses offer a unique opportunity to spend an intensive week with leading experts and fellow participants, away from routine distractions. The courses are designed for policy-makers, diplomats, investors, development workers, researchers, activists and journalists—for new arrivals to the region and those already working there who wish to deepen their understanding. This year all three courses will be taking place in Kenya in June.
