Illuminating African Politics
The APCG is dedicated to expanding the understanding of African politics. As an arm of the American Political Science Association, the African Studies Association and the International Studies Association, we foster diverse perspectives and methods among scholars and students.
The APCG strives to highlight the contributions of African academics, emerging scholars, and those working with innovative methods of research. A true understanding of African politics can only emerge when scholars across these political landscapes have their voices heard.
The APCG works to create opportunities for collaboration, engagement, and professional development among scholars based in African institutions and outside the continent, through conferences, workshops, and professional networks.
Impacting Public Discourse
The APCG is dedicated to enhancing public discourse around African politics. We aim to inform and influence policy actors, media, and the general public about the significant contributions our members make to the field.
