Structural financing 

The Carl Schlettwein Foundation supports the establishment of structures and foundations that enable an academic dialogue with Namibia and southern Africa as well as create the conditions for implementation of research projects.


Structures enable projects


The Carl Schlettwein Foundation’s funding of lectureships, its support of the University of Basel’s Chair of African History and its cooperation with the Centre for African Studies serve to strengthen Basel’s standing as hub of research on Africa. 

With the Basler Afrika Bibliographien, the Carl Schlettwein Foundation operates its own documentation centre on southern Africa, specialising in Namibia, and makes its holdings accessible to scholars and the general public.
