In it, the ASCL draws on the rich heritage of its past research and makes use of its broad and ever-expanding network, namely the ASCL Community.

The research programme focuses on the following four major areas:

1. Africa's global connections 
2. Constellations of governance 
3. Identification and belonging in a media age 
4. Resources and well-being

The ASCL is currently establishing its new research programme 2018-2023. You can already read about the ASCL Chairs and the new Collaborative Research Groups.
