Cooperation at a National Level

The CASB cooperates closely with the Swiss Society for African Studies (Schweizerische Gesellschaft für Afrikastudien SGAS/Société Suisse d’Etudes Africaines SSEA) on a local basis in Switzerland. Together, we organise research and training, conferences and the publication of academic works in African Studies.
Apart from this, the CASB also maintains close links with other Swiss universities involved in African research. Among these are the Universities of Berne, Fribourg, Geneva (and the IHEID), Lausanne, Lugano, Neuchâtel and Zürich. In addition, the CASB has ties to a range of other organisations and private foundations.
