The French Institute for Research in Africa (IFRA) has been active in East Africa since 1977; its offices are in Nairobi, Kenya.
Research covers Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi and eastern DRC.
IFRA promotes research in all the disciplines of the social sciences and humanities, mainly geography, political science, anthropology and history. Archaeology missions are also supported.
IFRA works under the French Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs (MEAE) and the Centre national de la recherche scientifique (CNRS).
It is part of the ‘French Research Centers Abroad’ network, called UMIFRE.
