She will chair the jury in the Humanities category of the Harbinger Prize 2023 competition, reviewing submitted essays and deciding — with Harbingers’ Magazine editors — which will be awarded the three winning places.
Over the last decade, Professor Toni Haastrup has established a reputation as a leading expert and scholar on Africa-EU relations, on feminist foreign policy, and on the politics of knowledge production and race within the Women, Peace and Security agenda.
She is a recipient of the Flax Foundation’s Emma Goldman Award, which honours substantial contribution and engagement to feminist knowledge-making in Europe.
As an expert, Prof Haastrup was consulted by the World Bank, the United Nations, the European Union and the governments of Ireland, Canada and Scotland, as well as the House of Lords in the UK.

The Harbinger Prize 2023: Essay on Humanities
Submit an essay of up to 1,500 words on one of five subjects. The Humanities cover politics, international affairs, culture, sociology, psychology, law, human rights and related fields. Please keep in mind that we’re looking for a story searching for truth, so intellectual shortcuts, a lack of data and unsubstantiated claims may place your essay at a disadvantage.
We will select three winning articles, with prizes worth £4,500 in education in journalism. Across all the submission categories, we will also select the best work of the year, which will crown the winner with The Harbinger Prize and £10,000 in individual tuition from The Oxford School for the Future of Journalism.
The competition is open to all students in the last three years of pre-university education, regardless of their country of residence.
Students have until noon on August 15, 2023, to submit their articles.
