CERTIZENS (Certifications of Citizenship in Africa), which is concerned with national identification systems and their significance for state-citizen relations, is the largest research project at the Centre of African Studies (CAS), where it is housed within CAS’s ‘Sovereignties and Citizenships’ research platform. It involves a partnership between CAS in Copenhagen, the Institute of African Studies at the University of Ghana, and the College of Humanities and Social Sciences at Makerere University.
