Africa Power and Politics
The APPP research consortium (2007-13) worked to identify ways of exercising power and doing politics that work for development.
Bringing together researchers in France, Ghana, Niger, Uganda, the UK and the USA, APPP questioned conventional ideas about what 'good governance' should mean in the context of sub-Saharan Africa.

Initiating and sustaining Developmental Regimes in Africa
Developmental Regimes in Africa (DRA) (2012-15) explored the policies and governance conditions that are needed if Africa is to match the economic and social achievements of Southeast Asia.
DRA brought together Tracking Development, led by the African Studies Centre in Leiden, Netherlands; the University of Leiden’s leading specialists in Southeast Asian studies; and Africa Power and Politics, led by the Overseas Development Institute, London.
