Africa Policy Group (APG)
The Africa Policy Group (APG), formed in 2011, is a non-partisan coalition of 30 senior Africa experts. The goal of the group is to help shape a more robust U.S. Africa policy by deepening knowledge and discussing new findings about Africa among group members, and then sharing informed APG perspectives with Members of Congress, senior Administration officials and the private sector. APG activities include periodic meetings with visiting African leaders, informal sessions and evaluation of evidence-based background information for hearings and other public forums.
The APG is moving! APG meetings will now convene under the aegis of The George Washington University's Elliott School of International Affairs, as part of the new
Vivian Lowery Derryck Africa Lecture Series.
