European Xtramile Centre of African Studies

The European Xtramile Centre of African Studies (EXCAS) produces knowledge that is relevant for Africa’s economic development challenges. It goes an extra mile by providing policy makers and the scientific community with quality knowledge products that have largely been peer-reviewed and forthcoming in scientific media. Hence, there is a tacit acknowledgement of anonymous referees for constructive suggestions and critiques that have helped improve the content and rigour of the studies published by EXCAS as working papers.


The EXCAS also coordinates Africa-related events and scientific collaborations with institutions in Europe and Africa. EXCAS is also established with the objective of becoming a premier centre in knowledge production for Africa’s development in Europe.
