Centre of African Studies


AEGIS (Africa-Europe Group for Interdisciplinary Studies) is a research network of European studies centres which aims to create synergies between experts and institutions. With primary emphasis on Social Sciences and Humanities, AEGIS' main goal is to improve understanding about contemporary African societies. 

Information about  AEGIS, its member institutions and activities is available on the AEGIS website: This site also provides useful links to African studies issues elsewhere in Europe and Africa. Whenever possible, enquiries should be addressed in the first place to the AEGIS member centre nearest to you – as opposed to the AEGIS secretariat.
