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.

Amplifying Voices

Fostering Collaboration

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.
