The Afro-Asian Institute for Labor Studies and Cooperation was founded by the US AFL-CIO labour federation and the Israeli Histadrut.[1]

According to a 1964 study by Bernard Reich:

During the period 1959-1961 Africans participating in the Institute came from Dahomey, Ethiopia, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Kenya, Liberia, Nigeria, Rhodesia, Senegal, French Sudan (Mali), Chad and Guinea.
The Institute is designed to train Asian and African students to assume positions of leadership in their native labor movements. The program of study includes both theoretical and practical courses in the organization and functioning of trade unions and cooperative enterprise.[1]
