Institute of African Studies

The Institute of African Studies (IAS) promotes and coordinates African studies in 12 subject groups distributed over four of the six faculties of the University of Bayreuth. This broad range of disciplines within African studies is unique in the German-speaking countries. The IAS is also responsible for coordinating research and teaching, training junior researchers, and promoting the exchange of information between persons and institutions engaged in research and teaching in or on Africa.
