EUCLID (Euclid University) is an international intergovernmental organization with a university charter established in 2008 (United Nations Treaty Series I-49006/49007). Its Participating States are Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Sierra Leone, Eritrea, Uganda, Vanuatu, Benin (informal), Senegal, Comoros, Burundi, Central African Republic, Timor-Leste and The Gambia. Its primary mission is to train government staff and groups of special interest for its Participating States, but also to offer focused distance education to a limited number of general public students.
As an autonomous institution, EUCLID is the result of the adoption by the Participating States of academic programs developed by the “Pôle d’Extension Universitaire Euclide,” a consortium of universities (led by the University of Bangui and the University of N’Djamena) established in 2005. EUCLID is also an educational partner for other intergovernmental bodies: ECOWAS (Economic African Community of Western African States), ICCI (Islamic Chamber of Commerce and Industry, an institution of the Organization of the Islamic Conference) and CAFRAD (African Training and Research Centre in Administration for Development).
According to the Statutes, its specialized institutes are the International Organization for Sustainable Development, The Center for Ecological Desertification and Reforestation, the EuroState University Institute and the International Institute for Inter-Religious Diplomacy.
EUCLID specializes in distance-learning programs in the following fields: diplomacy, international law, sustainable development, Islamic finance, energy studies, international public health, and inter-religious dialogue. The institution has an academic staff of about 60 and serves about 250 students.
