"Giving Back to My Community"

Now on DIPFblog: Interview with Abebayehu Messele Mekonnen from Addis Ababa University in Ethiopia, our current visiting scholar at the DIPF.

Abebayehu M Mekonnen from Addis Ababa University in Ethiopia is teaching linguistics, heads a charity organization that supports children with learning disabilities in his home country – and is now a visiting scholar at the DIPF until the end of the year.

He would like to establish networks for his research at the institute and learn more about the projects of the scientists concerning learning disabilities at the institute. We welcome Abe to Frankfurt – with a conversation about educational research in a developing country, about the need to give something back to one’s homeland, and about the best apple pie in Germany.
