About Us

The mission of the Cairo Center for African Studies (CCAS) is to promote strategic and realistic policies to decision-makers that secure the national security interests of Africa in the twenty-first century. CCAS seeks to generate African solutions to African problems by engaging policymakers and opinion leaders, and providing them with insights, policy recommendations, and informed analysis about the most pressing issues facing the African continent. As the premier Africa-focused Egyptian think-tank based in Cairo, CCAS brings together a selective group of scholars, academics, and policymakers with the most distinguished experiences in the fields of international security, political science, and economics.
