Hellenic Network of African Studies

The Hellenic Network of African Studies aims at linking up Greek-speaking scholars with considerable interests and research experience on the African continent. The Network’s principal functions are to promote research on Africa, to develop an interdisciplinary community of Africa-oriented scholars in Greece and Cyprus, to strengthen international links and networks and to offer consultative services to government and Civil Society organizations by pooling together the expertise of its members. The Network was initiated by the University of the Peloponnese and the University of the Aegean but now includes Africanists from several Greek and Cypriot universities and prides itself as the only Africa-focused academic network in the region. The Hellenic Network of African Studies is an affiliate member of AEGIS – African Studies in Europe – A Network in Excellence.
