The West African Research Center (WARC)


The West African Research Center (WARC) is the overseas research center for the West African Research Association (WARA). It is located in Dakar, Senegal. WARC is a center for academic exchange between American and West African scholars that encourages research on the region of West Africa.

The idea for the overseas center came about in May 1992 and was implemented in the Fall of 1993. WARC has grown both in terms of staff and influence as it continues to connect researchers in the USA with researchers in the region of West Africa interested in common issues.
