Thank you for sharing your knowledge and competence in the field of development policy



The Arbeitskreis Entwicklungspolitik (development policy work group) was founded in the spring

term of 2009 and has since held regular weekly meetings. Among the participants are students, lecturers and professors, with an interest in various theories and projects related to development policy. The weekly meetings are carried out interactively with discussions, short lectures, and an exchange of experiences, e.g. about internships at NGO’s ( GIZ, ASA, KfW and others). The lectures are held by both lecturers and students, who are thereby given the opportunity to present their Bachelor- and Mastertheses or their doctorates to a small group of people and analyze it collectively. As the conference is perfectly suited to the thematics of EPO it is a good opportunity for active group members to put their knowledge into practice, supporting AEGEE as a main partner of the organization.

Thank you for a fair and delicious catering

Thanks to our Design Specialist

Melani Becker

  • long-lasting design of print- & web-products
  • production of printing products in a resource-friendly way
  • corporate design
  • web-design
  • logos, signets, websites, brochures, flyers, folders, catalogues, books,
  • posters,  advertisements, packaging and much more.

I love to get involved with new people and their projects. What I particularly enjoy is the creative process, translating the newly gained information and insight into a visual language. Especially in the field of logo-design, certain characteristics are reduced to a distinctive identity which is transmitted very quickly to the observer.

My motto:

To find a visual appearance that matches with a company’s inner picture, so that it is able to act authentically and present itself in a credible way.
