Andrey Maslov
The Director of the Center for African Studies
The HSE University Center for African Studies was founded in 2020 due to the growing importance of Africa in global politics and economy, as well as the increasing significance of strengthening long-term cooperation between Russia and African countries.
The Center specializes in expert and analytical work, studies African markets, assesses financial, legal and political risks as well as prepares reports and recommendations. For this purpose, the Center consolidates the expert and analytical potential of HSE University teaching staff and experts, alongside third-party organizations. The Center establishes contacts with research centers in Africa and other countries.

Among key results we can mention the study of the Nigerian power sector (NLNG T7: a Way to Euthanize the Nigerian Power Sector), guides for AgroExport and OZK group (United Grain Company), ccountry risk profiles, analytical reports "Digital Africa" and "African Energy”. The Center also published the second expanded edition of the expert-analytical handbook "Africa 2023: Opportunities and Risks".

The Center is part of the HSE Faculty of World Economy and International Affairs and is coordinated by the Vice-Rector, Head of the Office for Expert Analysis Andrey Zhulin.
