Program for African Thought

Project Description:

Africa is on the move. With a young, growing, and entrepreneurial population, large untapped markets, and unmatched natural endowments sitting side-by-side with persistent development problems, changing security threats, and severe environmental stress – Africa is slated to be one of the most dynamic and important regions of the 21st century. However, at this exciting time in the continent’s development, there is an absence of African voices on the global stage.

The World Policy Institute’s Program for African Thought (PAT) addresses this imbalance through a series of activities designed to enhance and expand the place for African thinkers in global policy debates. The program consists of three key projects focused on building local research capacity, amplifying existing African commentary, and promoting thought leadership. Through this effort, the Program looks to direct international attention towards ground-level thinkers and change-makers on the continent, bringing local insight into the heart of global affairs.
