The Africa/Asia/ Latin America Scholarly Collaborative Research Grant in Social and Human Sciences, 2012

The Collaborative Tri-continental Program was launched in 2005 by the Latin American Council of Social Sciences (CLACSO), the Council for the Development of Social Science Research in Africa (CODESRIA) and the Asian Political and International Studies Association (APISA) with the purpose of carrying out high quality social science research and enhancing the production of knowledge suitable for fostering southern perspectives on critical issues, and feeding these into global debates. The Program includes an annual South-South summer institute, research conferences, and grants for advanced research. The research grants are intended to promote collaboration among researchers from the South and to stimulate analytical empirical studies on topics of relevance for their regions and for the Global South.

The objective of this call is to select research projects on the themes and sub-themes described above and it is open to experienced researchers who have masters or doctoral degrees. Candidates are required to be supported by organizing institutions (APISA, CLACSO or CODESRIA) or their host institutions. The execution of the research will not exceed the 12 months period starting in June 2012. A mid-term report will be submitted six months after the beginning of the research. A final report will have to be presented no later than 30 days after the date of expiry of the grant 4 period, in accordance with the terms of contract to be signed with the organising institutions. The final report will include a text in an adequate format so as to allow its edition and publication as a book or monograph in paper or electronic format in the website of APISA/CLACSO/CODESRIA
