Join the PATH Community

Joining the Program for African Thought comes with a number of benefits for writers, scholars, and practitioners. These include access to our publication services, pitch forms, skills exchange, and our research and program forums. In addition, you will have access to a platform that will allow you collaborate with others form the continent, developing new ideas and programs, and finding any assistance or advice you might need to bring your ideas to fruition.

PATH functions as a research and professional community. And so while we are looking to include people from as many backgrounds as possible, it is important that we do some basic screening of potential members. This allows you to know that the people you interact with on PATH are well qualified, interested in, and engaged with scholarship, journalism, and public affairs and intend to make meaningful contributions to the community.

With all members having been approved by the PATH team, you know you are dealing only with the most engaged and innovative thinkers on the continent!
