intently pertinent to the Establishment’s advantage in brutality.

The Foundation welcomes proposals for the African Fellow Awards from any of the social and natural
sciences or allied disciplines that promise to increase understanding of the causes, manifestations, and
control of violence and aggression. Highest priority is given to research that can increase understanding
and amelioration of urgent problems of violence and aggression in the modern world. The proposed
project must relate directly to the African continent.

Areas of Interest:

The Foundation is interested in violence related to many subjects, including, but not limited to, the

  • War
  • Crime
  • Terrorism
  • Family and intimate-partner relationships
  • Climate instability and natural resource competition
  • Racial, ethnic, and religious conflict
  • Political extremism and nationalism
    The Foundation supports research that investigates the basic mechanisms in the production of violence,
    but primacy is given to proposals that make a compelling case for the relevance of potential findings for
    policies intended to reduce these ills. Likewise, historical research is considered to the extent that it is
    relevant to a current situation of violence. Examinations of the effects of violence are appropriate for a
    proposal only if a strong case can be made that these outcomes serve, in turn, as causes of future
