We sponsor panels at the Annual Meetings of the American Political Science Association, the African Studies Association, and the International Studies Association. We also maintain an active presence at the Annual Meetings of the International Studies Association, which has its own African Politics organized section.
The African Politics Conference Group currently sponsors panels at the following conferences: the American Political Science Association; the African Studies Association; and the International Studies Association. We also maintain a presence at the Midwest Political Science Association but do not sponsor panels, as MPSA has an organized African Politics section, which currently hosts as many as 16 panels a year.
APCG members have served as section chairs at all these conferences, allowing our members to be represented on panels sponsored by other sections as well as our official APCG panels.
Should individuals wish to apply for participation in APCG panels, please subscribe to the organization’s newsletters and follow the instructions provided therein.
