Abstract: "The Faculty of Arts and the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences have a long tradition of more than 10 years of intensive interdisciplinary Africa-related research: The Cologne African Studies Centre (CASC) wants to support and to coordinate these activities from now on. Furthermore, we have established an intensive collaboration on this Africa focus with researchers from the University of Bonn from the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences and the Faculty of Agriculture in particular. One of the objectives of CASC is to establish networks of research- and study-activities on Africa at the University of Cologne with similar activities at the Universities of Bonn and Aachen. The new centre has the objective to serve as an umbrella for the existing interdisicplinary and inter-faculty research projects and to initiate, execute and adequately represent new projects. The CASC consolidates and supports all fundamental and application-oriented research and studies of its member-institutions." [editors ilissAfrica]
