Deadline: 15 July 2016
The Council for the Development of Social Science Research in Africa (CODESRIA) is currently accepting applications for its 2016 Child and Youth Institute that will be held for two (2) weeks, from 17 to 28 October 2016 to strengthen the analytic capacities of young African researchers on issues affecting children and youth in Africa and elsewhere in the world. The institute is designed as an annual interdisciplinary forum in which participants can reflect together on a specific aspect of the conditions of children and youth, especially in Africa.
The 2016 child and youth institute focuses on how African children place themselves with respect to aspirations, rights, entitlements, and imaginations in Africa’s futures.

Once selected, resource persons must:
- Interact with the Director of the Institute and the laureates to help the latter readjust their research questions and their methodological approaches
- Submit a copy of their course materials for reproduction and distribution to participants no later than one week before they deliver their lectures
- Deliver their lectures, participate in debates and comment on the research proposals and the papers of the laureates
- Review and submit the revised version of their lecture notes or research papers for publication by CODESRIA not later than two months following their presentation at the Institute.
- Laureates: Applicants should be PhD candidates or scholars in their early career with a proven capacity to conduct research on the theme of the Institute. Intellectuals active in the policy process and/or social movements and civil society organizations are also encouraged to apply. The number of places offered by CODESRIA at each session is limited to ten (10). Non-African scholars who are able to raise funds for their participation may also apply for a limited number of places.
