Report With funding from the RUB Research School I was able to conduct field research for the self-authored and most important paper of my PhD thesis. I spent 6 weeks in Gaborone, Botswana conducting expert interviews and data analysis on regional financial integration at the SADC Secretariat and GIZ offices. Given the sensitive nature of working with internal SADC data and interviewing SADC employees, it was essential to be there personally, in order to foster mutual trust and cooperation and ensure the reliability of my results. During my stay I also made contact with future collaboration partners and got an insight to future career opportunities outside of academia.
