This year’s workshop tagged “Strengthening ties and leading change” provided a platform for discussions on a wide range of issues which includes: Africa's voice at the G20, the AU's peace building programmes, and shrinking civil society space across Africa. In addition, the APC meeting mapped the way forward for the network which brings together 20 African think tanks and research organisations.
