Research Programmes

The basic assumptions that informed the launching of the CODESRIA Research Programme remain as valid to this day as they were in 1973: There is no fatality about the African condition, and research, properly undertaken and deployed, can and should play a key role in the social transformation and development of the African continent – as, indeed, any other region of the world. African scholars, through their research output, can and are expected not only to contribute to the expansion of the frontiers of scientific knowledge but also the strengthening of the capacity within the continent to respond to the multifaceted challenges of development that confront society. The Council, therefore, mobilises support for research in the conviction that the primacy of knowledge, and the freedom to pursue and transmit it, are indispensable to progress and advancement of any society.

The core activities within the CODESRIA Research Programme are carried out in one of the following sub-programmes:

- The Gender Research Programme

- National Working Groups (NWGs)
- Comparative Research Networks (CRNs)
- Transnational Working Groups (TWGs)
