Founded in 2003, the permanent secretariat of the Association is located at  New Delhi. It has its regional unit at Mumbai, Patiala, Udaipur, Chennai and Kolkata. The Association’s particular strength is in developing multi-disciplinary approach, bringing together the expertise of researchers from the natural, social sciences and humanities on African issues, through major research projects, seminars, workshops, discussion, round table, study groups, conferences, symposia, research colloquia. These programs increase contact and develop synergies between experts who are currently scattered over many departments, institutes and colleges across India. ASA encourages flow of ideas across different disciplines, and provides a base for collaborative projects on African affairs. The Association intends to link up the various African Studies programmes and such Associations all over the world. It has a special emphasis to work as an umbrella organization for African studies scholars in Asia to promote Asian perspective on African affairs to facilitate Afro-Asian cooperation. ASA has organized several international conferences, symposium and seminars.
