Africa project



"Projet Afrique" (Project Africa), launched under the Vassalli rectorship in 2012, aims to coordinate the various initiatives of UNIGE researchers relating to Sub-Saharan Africa. 

- 5 priority partners have been identified:

Framework agreements have been signed with these institutions, facilitating student and teacher exchanges as well as joint research projects.

- A Master's in African Studies was started in 2016, putting UNIGE at the forefront of French-speaking universities in this field. 

- African afternoons have bee regularly organised in order to bring UNIGE's Africanist community together to discuss multidisciplinary themes, thereby facilitating inter-faculty exchanges.

Projet Afrique does not currently have its own funding.
