Welcome on the web pages of the Centre for Interdisciplinary African Studies of the Goethe-University !
The “Centre for Interdisciplinary African Studies” is an amalgamation of scientists and scholars from various faculties of the Johann Wolfgang Goethe University, Frankfurt/Main.
Its function is to tie Africa-oriented activities at the Goethe University into a network of competence, and to:
- boost and enhance research conditions at the Goethe-University,
- initiate new projects with outside funds and maintain contact with national and international research funding,
- promote interdisciplinary initiatives, which are essential to the processing of complex scientific statements of problems in Africa,
- create a network of national and international institutions in research, economy, co-operative development work as well as culture,
- promote co-operation with African partners,
- co-ordinate African studies in academic teaching,
- practise public relation work that will transport a different image of African reality,
- afford a co-ordinating body for research inquires coming from the business world, as well as co-operative development work and organisations other than the university.
You can find information here on current research projects of the various disciplines, or you can search by countries.
You will find the centre’s charter here (german only).
