Call for Papers: Working Group in African Political Economy (WGAPE)

BITSS is co-sponsoring the 4th Working Group in African Political Economy (WGAPE) Annual Meeting, taking place May 29-30 at the Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs, Brown University.


WGAPE brings together faculty and advanced graduate students in Economics and Political Science who combine field research experience in Africa with training in political economy methods. Paper submissions must reflect WGAPE’s broad research agenda on core issues within the political economy of African development and encourages submissions of works-in-progress.

In addition, this year’s call for papers invites submissions of Pre-Analysis Plans (PAPs). There will be one dedicated session to the presentation and discussion of a PAP at this meeting.

  • Please find the full call for paper here.
  • Papers must be uploaded here by 11:59pm PT on April 19th.
  • Successful applicants will be notified by May 1st and will be invited to attend the full symposium.
  • WGAPE will cover the cost of economy travel, accommodation and dining (capped).
