Aims and scope

The Africa Governance Papers (TAGP), published by Good Governance Africa NPO (GGA), is an online, peer-review, academic journal that aims to foster an independent, African-based approach to research and governance decision making by: (1) providing a unique publishing platform for African researchers on issues relating to governance in Africa; and (2) equipping policymakers with evidence-based research that enables them to build capable state structures and to enable citizen participation in governance issues.

Good Governance Africa is an independent, non-governmental organisation with offices in Accra, Addis Ababa, Johannesburg and Lagos focusing on research and advocacy to improve governance around the continent of Africa. The organisation is in the process of establishing partnerships with like-minded NGOs across the continent. TAGP will initially be published bi-annually in March and September.
