CODESRIA is an institution sevicing a worldwide community of scholars. The Council’s Charter provides for full membership rights to individual African researchers and African research institutions. Associate membership is also available to non-African individuals and institutions. Membership forms are available for request for those wishing to be registered as members of the Council. For individuals, the annual membership fee is presently fixed at USD30 while for institutions, it is USD500. In addition to being informed about all CODESRIA activities, members receive the CODESRIA Bulletin, the Council’s annual report, and a discount on all publications issued by the Council.
As part of the constant effort to enhance the quality of service to members, the Secretariat decided in 2001 to create the post of a Membership Services Assistant charged with ensuring prompt and effective attention to the queries and needs of all members.
