Role Clarification & Key Performance Areas
The South African-German Centre for Transnational Criminal Justice was established at the University of the Western Cape (UWC) in 2008. The Centre was the result of successful cooperation between the Law Faculties of UWC and of Humboldt University of Berlin (HU), which goes back to the transition period in the early 1990s. The Centre was supported by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) with funds from the German Foreign Office from 2008 to 2018. During its 10-year existence, more than 125 students from 21 countries and from three continents successfully completed their Master’s degrees and more than 10 students their PhD degrees. Alumni now occupy high-level positions in many countries around the world. Members of the Centre, including alumni, produced many important publications during this period. UWC wishes to re-establish the Centre in collaboration with its German partners.
The successful candidate will play a central role in the re-establishment of the Centre, and will potentially serve a 5 year term as Director, should the Centre be successfully established in accordance with the University’s governance requirements.
