The Centre for Area Studies (CAS), founded in 2009, is an interdisciplinary and interdepartmental research institute at the Faculty of Social Sciences and Philosophy of the University of Leipzig. Placing a special emphasis on the academic collaboration between area studies and other disciplines in social sciences and humanities, CAS facilitates transregional and global approaches. The current research programme for the study period 2009–2014 promotes projects under the theme "Cultural Encounters and Political Orders in a Global Age", which is financially supported by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) through the initiative "Strengthening Area Studies in Germany". The Centre also receives funding from the German Research Council (DFG), which promotes graduate training at the Graduate School Global and Area Studies and research projects. The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) provides funding for programmes affiliated with the Centre for Area Studies, such as Welcome to Africa, New Passages to India, as well as interdisciplinary two-year MA and three-year PhD study programmes in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
