The Africa Research Group aims to provide a hub for Africanist research within the War Studies Department at King's College London. It brings together staff and research students working on a variety of themes but united by their regional focus on the African continent.

Through its activities, the Group creates a forum for dialogue and debate for both scholars and practitioners wishing to exchange ideas and expertise in the field of African affairs. It also supports the development of postgraduate research by providing a space for discussion of works in progress.

The Group runs afternoon and evening talks by invited speakers, and a series of collaborative events with the African Leadership Centre covering areas of common interest. 

The group is co-chaired by Dr Kieran Mitton and Dr Flavia Gasbarri.
