15th Call for the Casa África Essay Awards 2024


Casa África announces its 15th Essay Award on African themes and seeks submission from various writers with the sole purpose of recognizing, encouraging and disseminating original and unpublished essays that contribute to the knowledge of the African continent.
 

Casa África Essay Awards 2024 Submission Guidelines 


The essays must be about the topic chosen for this edition, which is none other than  intra-African immigration.

An exposition on the theme was further provided by the organizers, that:

The vast majority of African mobility occurs between the borders of the African continent itself. Although many people associate the term migration with citizens of the neighboring continent and with an irregular, dramatic arrival in Europe, in precarious boats or jumping the fences of Ceuta or Melilla, African citizens usually prefer to move within their own countries, normally in migration processes. circulate in the heat of job and economic opportunities.

The most common thing is that these opportunities direct them from the interior to the coast or from the countryside to the large cities of their countries. When they decide to leave their homeland, it is common for them to choose to go to countries in the African neighborhood that offer them more possibilities for progress, where they can work or achieve better living conditions.

It is a reality that is also evident in conflicts and natural disasters, when the majority of displaced people choose to settle in another safer area of their country or head towards a neighboring country, also African.

The Casa África Essay Prize wishes to expand knowledge about this reality and seeks, in its new edition, to deepen the analysis of intra-African mobilities, the patterns they follow, their characteristics, their histories and their possible futures, in addition to adding to the investigation of these phenomena which imply factors such as human security (or its absence) or climate change.

Casa África seeks, once again, rigorous works, this time on intra-African migrations, that are well-founded, that go beyond the cliché and that explore diverse realities from a critical and original point of view.

For all these reasons, the “Casa África Essay” Prize wanted to focus this year on this topic and invites academics and experts to present their proposals .

This call is open to any natural person over 18 years of age of any nationality and resident in any country who does not have a work and/or professional relationship with Casa África, or with any of the institutions that make it up (Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation , Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation, Government of the Canary Islands and City Council of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria) nor with any of its workers up to the 4th degree of consanguinity. The winners of previous calls will not be able to participate either.

The winning work will be published within our Essay Prize Collection and a prize of 2,000 euros will also be awarded subject to the Spanish tax legislation in force at the time of payment, regardless of the country of tax residence of the author or authors. that they are winners.

The essays must be original, unpublished and must not have been awarded or pending failure in other competitions and may be presented in Spanish, English, French or Portuguese.
