The APF expert program is aimed at bringing the knowledge and expertise of our expert members to the wider public. Our Experts are drawn from a poll of academics and practitioners on African policy. They bring a high quality of expertise to the discussion of issues pertaining to African policy such as good governance, democratisation, economic development, environment, trade, security and many other related issues. Drawn from the ranks of researchers and practitioners, the APF experts exhibit strong academic credentials and distinguished policy expertise in their respective fields.
The benefits of being an APF expert includes regular invitations to participate at APF events such as panel discussions and conferences, full access to the APF document repository, host personal blogs on the APF website, publish their work on the website and many more.
In the coming days and weeks we shall be contacting some of you who are already members of APF and whom we think do qualify for the program. This will be based on the information you provided when you first joined the APF.
Most (if not all) of our experts are Phd holders. Exceptions to this rule are individuals with exceptional knowledge gained through experience as a practitioner on issues pertaining to African policy.
