FUNDING: South-South Annual Research Grants
The South-South annual research grants aim to promote collaboration among researchers from the South and to stimulate analytical empirical studies on topics of relevance for their countries. Special attention will be given to projects involving the elaboration of alternative methodologies, the generation of new empirical data and the critical questioning of dominant theoretical paradigms. Altogether 9 (nine) proposals will be selected with a maximum grant of USD 10,000 per project. The resources allocated would be freely utilized in activities related with the research: information collection, data processing, books purchase and related expenses. Resources cannot be used for project designing or for direct or indirect costs of the supporting institutions.
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 enhancing the production of knowledge suitable for fostering high quality social science research to build a Southern perspective on critical issues, with the aim of feeding these into global debates.
