At the heart of the Field Museum’s work in Africa are the African institutions with whom we collaborate. Many of the institutions, particularly those in the Congo, have continued functioning through civil war and political turmoil thanks to the remarkable commitment and talent of their staff. These same people have been and continue to be instrumental colleagues for our projects in the region. Some of these institutions lack web pages, so on the following pages, we provide descriptions of them.
