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.

Supported by the Carnegie Corporation of New York, the MENA Workshops are a multi-year collaboration with political and social scientists from the MENA region to enhance regional scholarly capacity and networks. Previous workshops have been held at the American University in Cairo (AUC), the American Center of Oriental Research (ACOR) in Amman, the Center for Maghreb Studies in Tunis (CEMAT), and Lebanese American University (LAU) in Beirut. An open Call for Applications can be found on the MENA Workshop website: www.apsanet.org/menaworkshops.
