Example of Fieldwork

Moritz Sommer in Argentina August – December 2010

What I enjoyed most during my time at the national chapter of Friedrich Ebert Foundation in Buenos Aires was the proximity to national politics that provided interesting insights into the very unique political conditions of Argentina. Focusing on the role of the labour unions, I was fascinated by the social dynamics and the high level of politicization in the country.

Thanks to the excellent contacts of my colleagues, I was able to conduct very fruitful interviews on my research subject, the social agenda of the MERCOSUR integration process.
