John and Elnora Ferguson Centre for African Studies (JEFCAS)

John and Elnora Ferguson Centre for African Studies (JEFCAS) supports teaching and research on Africa at the University of Bradford.  Located in the world-renowned Division of Peace Studies and International Development, the Centre endeavours to combine intellectual rigour and policy relevance through research, publications and seminars that offer insights into the interplay between the political, diplomatic and analytical worlds. The Centre's mission is to foster a collaborative and vibrant environment in which expertise on Africa is shared between academics, researchers, and students across all departments and research centres within the Faculty of Social Sciences (FoSS). It also acts as a platform for interdisciplinary research, bringing the University's Africanists together with scholars from African, American and European Universities.
