About Felix Ampadu

I am a Ph.D. student in Sociocultural Anthropology and also a Research Associate with the Bureau of Applied Research in Anthropology. I graduated in September 2016, from Aarhus University in Denmark with a Master’s degree in Anthropology of Education and Globalisation, where I studied on a Danish state Scholarship and grant award. Prior to this recent academic endeavor, I received my Bachelor’s degree in Art Education from the University of Education, Winneba in Ghana where I originally came from.

I did fieldwork in an Afro-Empowerment Organisation (NGO) in Copenhagen, Denmark, looking at how empowerment is practice as a means to Citizenship and the demand for the values inherent in the concept of Citizenship. I have a broader interest in issues of development in ‘developing countries’ (sub-Saharan Africa and Southern America) with a focus on the Challenges of developmental programmes and its implementation by international development agencies.
