The devoted supervision and feedback is what made me choose for CHL. I got to learn about my strengths and challenges on a both content-related and personal level.

It was really interesting to explore and research all kinds of societal challenges and topics within the world. I can further use the acquired knowledge and skills within my daily work as a researcher.
