APCG promotes quality, cutting-edge research of African Politics from diverse methodological and theoretical backgrounds. APCG gives annual awards for the best books and articles on African politics.

Notable Scholarship

Every year the APCG gives out awards for the best book, best article and best paper by a graduate student in the study of African politics.  In the past, our article committees have reviewed 50-100 articles per year to select the winner.  The book committees have chosen from the 15-30 manuscripts on African politics that are published annually.

We are happy to highlight these as some of the more notable and recommended scholarship produced by the Africanist community over the past few years:
