External Award: ASC-IIAS Joint Fellowship Program in Asian-African Relations

July 18, 2017

The International Institute for Asian Studies in the Netherlands and the African Studies Centre in Leiden are offering the ASC-IIAS Joint Fellowship Programme for researchers whose work is informed by current theoretical debates in the social sciences and humanities over global connectivities and who are able to critically engage with shifting paradigms  in “area studies” beyond the ways in which these have traditionally been conceived in the West.  

They are particularly interested in receiving fellowship proposals that go beyond a mere analysis of current issues associated with African-Asian comparative economic developments or Chinese investments in Africa -- although none of these themes, if appraised critically and for their societal consequences, will of course be excluded. Their definition of Asia and Africa is broad and inclusive, Asia ranging from the Middle-East to the Pacific Coast, and Africa from North-Africa to the southern tip of the continent.

  • Fellowship of maximum 6 months
  • Fellows will receive a monthly grant to cover the cost of living and housing
  • Applications include a work plan of 1000 words maximum and a CV
  • Candidates should have a PhD

The deadline is March 15 and September 15 of each year. For more information, please visit their website
