The Africa-Asia ICAS Book Prize

The Africa-Asia ICAS Book Prize (AAIBP) was established by the ICAS Secretariat and A-Asia in 2013. The aim is to create by way of a global competition both an international focus for publications on Africa-Asia while at the same time increasing their visibility worldwide.

Current Edition: The AAIBP 2018

Eligible titles are academic publications in the Humanities and Social Sciences, written by an African scholar on an Asia-related topic or by any author on Africa-Asia (transnational) linkages.

In 2019, ICAS will return to Europe, to where it began: Leiden, the Netherlands. The historic city of Leiden is home to one of the oldest universities and several of the most renowned Asia research centres.

Leiden University will be the main host of ICAS 11, thereby partnering with the city, research institutions and museums, who share equally rich Asian and global connections.
