Japan-Africa Scholars Network (JASNET) aims to promote the development of African studies through exchanging ideas and deepening the dialogue among scholars involved in African studies. The CAAS at Kyoto University and the DAAS (Department of African Area Studies) at the Graduate School of Asian and African Area Studies (ASAFAS) at Kyoto University have conducted joint research with many invited researchers and have been involved in the education of international students from Africa. In the process, the idea was proposed as a platform for exchanging information among scholars and international students who have had the experience of visiting Japanese educational and research institutions, including Kyoto University. A network open to a wider audience was thus established.

If you would like to participate, please fill out the application form and send it to the secretariat by e-mail.
