A wide range of African countries face pivotal presidential elections in the coming years—each with significant implications for democratic consolidation and economic transformation within their borders and beyond. This new Carnegie initiative aims to provide insights into the evolving factors that will shape these elections, ranging from technological advances and changing youth demographics to rising economic pressures. Jointly led by Carnegie’s Africa Program and Democracy, Conflict and Governance Program, the project also will analyze how these elections’ outcomes may shape governance pathways on the continent.

In a complex, changing, and increasingly contested world, the Carnegie Endowment generates strategic ideas and independent analysis, supports diplomacy, and trains the next generation of international scholar-practitioners to help countries and institutions take on the most difficult global problems and safeguard peace. Join our mailing list to become part of our network of more than 150 scholars in 20 countries.
