The African Centre for the Study of the United States (ACSUS) is the definitive hub for African-generated knowledge of the United States (US).
Based at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa, ACSUS was established to redress the imbalance in the knowledge flow between the US and Africa. ACSUS is the first on the African continent to turn a nuanced, analytical, and rigorous African gaze on the US.
To be the leading African intellectual and engagement Centre, shaping discourse and deepening the understanding of the US.
To innovate and sustain new ways of understanding the US, relevant to Africa and Africans through research, publishing, teaching and exchanges.
Understanding Africa by understanding the US.
