This page introduces the six regions of the World Student Christian Federation and links to introductory pages for each region. WSCF regional pages in this section detail each region’s membership, leadership, aims, activities and contact details, including regional websites.
WSCF Regions: Overview
WSCF has six regions; Africa, Asia-Pacific, Europe, Latin America and Caribbean, Middle East and North America. WSCF regional programme and administrative staff operate from their regional offices in Nairobi, Hong Kong, Budapest, Buenos Aires, Beirut and Toronto.
Until the late 1960s, the programme and administrative staff of WSCF had all been based in Geneva. A major structural change in the early 1970s moved the focus of WSCF into the six regions the Federation has today. At this time, the programmatic and decision-making work shifted to the regions, reflecting the new mode of self-determination and the search for contextualisation in theology and politics.
The life and work of the regions and the interaction between regions help maintain the Federation’s commitment to global equality and partnership.
Each region has a particular character drawn from the cultures, churches and movements that make up its membership. To view the introductory page to a WSCF region, please click on the region’s link in the list below.
