Since 1959, the field of African studies has been a focus of the University of Bordeaux. Over the years, a number of research centers, Master and PhD diplomas as well as leading research programs have been developed in association with exceptional research teams. A variety of education facilities exist covering the domains of: public health and epidemiology analysis (Bordeaux School of Public Health - ISPED, Bordeaux Population Health Centre - IDLIC team), economics (Theoretical and Applied Economics Research Group - GREThA), political science, geography and anthropology (Les Afriques dans le Monde - LAM). This unique association of academic facilities makes the Bordeaux African studies community one of Europe’s main research centers dedicated to the topic.
Bordeaux’s African studies community is closely related to the main European networks including AEGIS/ECAS in the field of social sciences and public health, and is also a core supporter of the French review “Politique africaine”.
