Mission Statement

The Liberian Studies Association is a non-profit, scholarly organization created to provide a means for effective cooperation among persons interested in furthering research in all scholarly disciplines on topics relevant to the Republic of Liberia and adjacent areas. The LSA strives to publish and disseminate the results of such research; to collaborate with other scholarly organizations, and cultural, scientific, and educational institutions, nationally and internationally, having mutual interests in the exchange and presentation of information and ideas resulting from research in the subject field; to encourage interest in Liberian affairs; and to stimulate and facilitate academic contacts and educational exchanges between Liberia and other countries.


The LSA produces the second oldest African studies journal in the United States, the Liberian Studies Journal, which is published bi-annually in June and December.            E-mail: liberianstudiesassociation@gmail.com
