The 14th Africa Policy Circle conference was held in Lagos, Nigeria on the 17th and 18th of November 2022. This year’s theme, “Africa in the 2020s And Beyond-Challenges and Possibilities”, provided a platform for participants drawn from think tanks across Africa to unpack some of the critical challenges affecting the continent’s possibilities of economic recovery and ethical and political leadership.
