African Studies Centre Leiden-International Institute for Asian Studies (ASCL-IIAS) Joint Fellowship Programme for Research Study in The Netherlands 2018.
fellowship is jointly offered by IIAS and the African Studies Centre in
Leiden to attract 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. .

About the Award:  We
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. Our 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.
