About us

The Center for Economic, Legal and Social Studies (CEDEJ Khartoum) carries out collaborative, multidisciplinary research programs in contemporary Sudan . Institutions, professors, researchers and graduate students—both Sudanese and international—contribute to the scholarly activities coordinated by CEDEJ Khartoum. CEDEJ Khartoum benefits from its privileged access to the field to undertake a whole series of research programs.

CEDEJ Khartoum is part of the broader Mixed Unit of French Research Institutes abroad (a network of 27 research institutes in the world), within CEDEJ in Cairo (USR 3123), having two institutional affiliations: first, with the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) and, second, with the French Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs.

CEDEJ Khartoum has established formal partnerships with universities and research institutes in Sudan and in France. Its main partner in Sudan since the mid-1990s has been the renowned Faculty of Economic and Social Studies at the University of Khartoum . Its partners in France are the research institute Les Afriques dans le Monde at Sciences Po Bordeaux, the research institute LAVUE at the University Paris 8 Vincennes Saint-Denis, and the Agence universitaire de la Francophonie .

CEDEJ Khartoum hosts a collection of about 3000 books (Arabic, English and French) on Sudan, South Sudan, the Horn of Africa, Africa and the Middle-East from different disciplines (history, economics, geography, anthropology, sociology, political science etc. .). The center is opened to the public every day, from 9am to 12am and from 2pm to 5pm. Its developments constitute a priority for the branch in the years to come. Internet connection and working space are available.
