A short history of AAPS biennial conferences

AAPS’ biennial conferences and annual workshops were platforms to attend for exchange of notes, discussion of on-going research, formation of new research networks, the launches of major publications, and exchanges with research funders and publishing houses. These platforms helped in the formation of schools of thought such as the Dar es Salaam, Ibadan, Cairo and Harare (SAPES Trust) schools in the 1980s through to the 2000s.These helped induct scholars emerging with the arrival of a new South Africa to the broader archive and legacy of African political thought in the 1990s, a crucial moment for the extension of AAPS’ reach. The association was central in strengthening the pan-African social science fraternity as one of the biggest and most organized associations participating in the CODESRIA network.
