Africa Institute of South Africa (AISA), a division of the HSRC

AISA in the HSRC undertakes basic, applied and comparative research devoted to the study of Africa and African Diasporas. Additionally, the Centre collaborates with and provides research-based policy advice to African multilateral organisations on public affairs.

The work of the Institute makes a contribution to addressing the many dimensions of the study of Africa in Africa and reversing the marginality, in global terms, of knowledge production in Africa.

For the next few years AISA will focus on good governance in Africa; the sustainable development agenda, including AU 2063; and human security on the continent. Africa's future and her place in the world will be central to the research AISA undertakes.
