Scientific Committee

As an association dedicated to research in social sciences, IFSRA has set up an international scientific committee.

Composed of members from international institutions and African universities, its main role is to contribute to IFSRA scientific policy together with the Scientific Director, in particular:

  • By giving its opinion on research programmes and support activities implemented by IFSRA
  • By suggesting workshop topics, field trainings, symposia and conferences, in which IFSRA members could participate
  • By supporting capitalisation on scientific issues highlighted by the studies and projects implemented by IFSRA
  • By involving its members individually to review the scientific productions issued by IFSRA
  • Potentially, by mobilising its members individually to participate in research programmes and scientific activities funded by IFSRA
