    Transnational Vulnerabilities in Governance, Employment, Health and Education: Finding Inclusive Solutions in the US and Africa

    About ASRI

    The African Social Research Initiative (ASRI) is a partnership between U-M and universities in Ghana and South Africa. Previous conferences in Cape Town and Accra presented the results of research by ASRI partners on economic development, public health, gender equity, distributive politics, and governance both in the United States and on the continent of Africa. ASRI's purpose is to showcase social science work on Africa by emerging scholars and provide opportunities for data sharing and analysis.
