Join the Community of Social Science and Humanities Scholars in Africa
The CODESRIA Charter is the core institutional document that formalises the establishment of the Council, outlines its objectives and functions, and expounds on its composition and membership.
Revised and adopted by the 14th General Assembly of CODESRIA held in Dakar, Senegal in 2015, it tasks the Council with the following eight objectives:
- Develop the social sciences in Africa by mobilising the African social science community to undertake fundamental policy-oriented research from a perspective that is relevant to the demands of the African people.
- Encourage and support comparative research with a continental perspective expressing the specificity of development processes in Africa.
