How do scholars of political science in Africa teach the discipline? What are the main research agendas or topics that interest African scholars and how are they tackled around the continent? In this webinar, the panelists will shed light on the interests, priorities, and challenges facing political science research and teaching in/on Africa. In a much challenging political, economic, and social climate that engulfs different countries across the continent, this discussion comes as an opportunity to reconnect with the discipline and one another. The webinar will examine how Africa is situated within global political science debates while exploring opportunities for decolonizing the discipline and offering new voices and approaches.
This webinar is organized by the Arab Political Science Network in collaboration with the African Association of Political Science.
