Kenya Coast Portal

The Kenya Coast is a region with distinct geographical, economic and social characteristics. It has a long history of intercontinental trade and cultural exchange with other communities along the East African coast as well as with the Middle East and South Asia. Due to its cultural diversity and varied history, the Coast has attracted the attention of many researchers over the years. The Kenya Coast Portal is a service provided by the African Studies Centre Leiden (ASCL) for students, researchers, development workers, government officials and others with an interest in the region. It incorporates the disciplines of anthropology, economics, education, geography, health, history, languages, law, political science, religion and sociology.
