Visiting Scholar information

CCS Visitors
Visiting Scholars may work with CCS for several months or up to a year. CCS provides Visiting Scholars with a temporary university access card, access to the UKZN library and the CCS resource centre, access to a computer and shared workspace, and a warm invitation to participate in all CCS events.

Since our resources, energies, time and space at CCS are limited, we ask that all Visiting Scholars give back to the Centre and South African civil society in the following ways:

  • Provide research proposal and CV before they come.

  • Deliver a paper at a CCS seminar (if seminar slots are available; other alternatives include circulating research to CCS staff via email, etc.). The paper may be made into a CCS Research Report where appropriate.

  • Agree to provide a copy of their Masters/PhD thesis and any publications produced during their time at the Centre.

  • Volunteer and 'give back' to civil society (existing links to organisations in relevant fields will be an advantage).

  • Attendance of the CCS seminar series and events


  • Please send a CV and research proposal to Shauna Mottiar at Mottiar@ukzn.ac.za in order to apply. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis. A team of CCS staff will evaluate your proposal from academic, civil society engagement (ie. how your research and activities here will give back to the sector), and logistical points of view. If your proposed research is not a good match with the Centre, we may be able to suggest other more suitable organisations for pursuing your research interests.

    Scholar activists from the Global South, especially South Africa and Africa, are strongly encouraged to apply.

    For more information on the Visiting Scholar programme, see the 'Centre Visitors' link on the CCS website (ccs.ukzn.ac.za).
