CALL FOR RESEARCH PROPOSALS
Global Development Network
The Global Development Network invites researchers from developing and transition countries to submit proposals for the 2012 Global Research Competition. The themes in 2012—which is the pilot year of this program – include Education & Gender, Food Security and Political Economic & Social Transformations. The research competition is inter-regional and multi-disciplinary. Proposals can be submitted individually, or in teams. An online platform will help individuals and incomplete teams to find collaborators. Each winning team will be paired with world-class mentors. Grants are up to US$ 32,000 for projects of up to 18 months. The submission deadline is 21 May 2012.
CALL FOR PAPERS

I would like to draw your attention to the attached call for papers for the conference on ‘ Religion, AIDS and Biographies’ which the International Research Network on Religion and AIDS in Africa is co-hosting with the University of Groningen in Groningen, The Netherlands, December 2012. The deadline for the submission of paper-proposals will be postponed to June, so there is ample time to respond and/or to forward the CFP to others interested.
