Founded in 1963, CAS is the only such academic unit in Scotland dedicated to the study of Africa. We draw on Africanist expertise across the University to create a dynamic atmosphere for the study of Africa in Edinburgh. Looking beyond the University, the Centre seeks to relate African Studies to the wider community, through links with the Scottish Parliament, NGOs and major educational and cultural organizations in Africa and Scotland.

Research School of Asian, African and Amerindian Studies | Leiden University (Netherlands)

The Research School of Asian, African, and Amerindian Studies (CNWS) integrates students and scholars in the arts, social sciences and law of the Non-Western world within the Netherlands. An important feature of the School is the variety of disciplinary and methodological approaches (such as anthropology, archaeology, history, art history, law, and philology) and the regional scope. Individual students and scholars usually focus on a specific region for extended periods of time. The regional and empathic focus of the School, and its international contacts, consequently encourage a fruitful exchange of research results.
