Research Strategy

The Centre of African Studies (CAS) undertakes cutting-edge, interdisciplinary research across the continent. Our scholars are committed to the critical study of a diverse range of topics as well as the pursuit of inclusive, ethical and equitable partnerships.

As the largest Centre for African Studies in Europe, we are at the forefront of theoretical, empirical and methodological innovation. Our rigorous research also shapes local, national and international debates and policy-making, as recognised by our ‘outstanding’ impact rating in the UK’s Research Excellence Framework
