The Africa-China Reporting Project (ACRP) is accepting applications for the reporting grants to support collaborations between reporters and/or researchers in Africa and Southeast Asia on shared developments relating to Chinese engagement in both regions.

The reporting grants support shared and collaborative reporting by reporters and/or researchers in African and Southeast Asian countries, with the aim of producing co-written and/or complimentary media outputs, to be published in publications in both regions at once. Overall, the Project is aimed at encouraging South-South knowledge sharing and conversations about China’s growing role across the developing world. Applicants are encouraged to investigate and uncover local and on-the-ground impacts of China’s South-South engagements.

ACRP is open to applications across a wide range of fields, but would especially encourage those focusing on:

  • Sustainability and development resilience
  • Environmental and social impacts of infrastructure development
  • Conservation and wildlife crime
  • Organized crime
  • Terrorism
  • Media and freedom of speech
  • Civil rights and democracy
  • Gender

Successful collaborative investigations and publications stand to be featured in The China in Africa Podcast, by the China-Global South Project. Furthermore, successful reporters and authors stand to participate in the Annual ACRP Journalists Forum, in Johannesburg, South Africa.
