About the APSA Africa Workshops

The American Political Science Association’s (APSA) Africa Workshop program is a multi-year effort funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to support political science research and teaching in Sub-Saharan Africa. It also forms a major component of APSA’s efforts to support research networks linking US scholars with their colleagues overseas and engage political science communities outside the United States.
