African Partnerships for Global Solutions
This is the first in a series of publications that will be put out by the Alliance for African Partnership on various aspects of partnerships in the African context. This edited volume and inaugural AAP publication was the product of numerous discussions in 2016 and 2017 with colleagues in African universities, research institutes, governments, private sector organizations and civil society, as well as with strategic development partners and MSU's Africanist faculty. It is a joint effort between MSU and African contributors and examines the history and trends of partnership as well as aspects of partnership that align with the AAP's three pillars: Building Bridges, Transforming Institutions, and Transforming Lives.
Summary Report of AAP Convening
Michigan State University International Studies and Programs and African Studies Center hosted a co-creation workshop to engage invited African guests and MSU faculty in open discussion and collaboration on the changing landscape in Africa and the future of institutional partnerships. This workshop provided an opportunity for the MSU community and African leaders to come together to share and build upon ideas about partnership, provide meaningful feedback, and identify the best approaches for building the AAP.
The Agrifood Youth Employment and Engagement Study (AgYees)
AgYees examines the potential of sub-Saharan Africa's agrifood systems to provide new jobs for unemployed, underemployed and disadvantaged youth, and identifies constraints affecting the capacity of youth to take up these economic opportunities.
