Professor Alcinda Honwana

2007/2008 Alcinda Honwana

On the recommendation of the Curatorium of the Prince Claus Chair in Development and Equity, the Institute of Social Studies appointed Professor Alcinda Honwana to the Prince Claus Chair in Development and Equity for the period 2007-2008. 

For 2007, the Curatorium focused on the theme of ‘Conflict and Conflict Resolution’ with a regional focus on Africa.

Born in Mozambique, Professor Honwana is an authority on child soldiers in Africa and on the predicament of young Africans in the context of ongoing globalisation processes in post-colonial Africa. 

She has been appointed to the Prince Claus Chair because she combines an excellent academic profile with a powerful and meaningful policy engagement in the field of conflict and conflict resolution in Africa.
