    Every two years the Harry Frank Guggenheim Foundation holds a competition for African scholars under the age of 35, born and educated on the continent and living there now, on a research topic related to the Guggenheim Foundation’s interest in a better understanding of violence and aggression.  Ten scholars are selected in an open competition to attend a methods workshop to improve their proposals, receive research grants of $2000 each and editorial help in writing up their findings, and at the end of the process, attend an international conference to present final papers.

    This year’s topic is “Violence and Social Change.”


    The African Studies Centre (ASC) and International Debate Education Association (IDEA) invite young people to train their debate skills, exchange with others and debate about the future of African youth. Instead of talking about African youth, we want to talk with African and Dutch young people in the project:
