As part of a joint initiative, the Africa Program and Leadership Project at the Wilson Center held a 3-day meeting series that featured prominent African scholars from June 5-7, 2012 titled, "Southern Voices in the Northern Policy Debate: African Perspectives."   This conference series was the third activity aimed at providing the opportunity for African voices to present their policy research on an international policy issue of their choice to a U.S. policy audience. The Southern Voices Initiative will not only elevate African perspectives on serious issues, but it will also serve to create a network of African think tanks and research institutions both with each other and their US counterparts that will help them keep their voices heard. A summary of the conference proceedings is forthcoming.

We would like to extend our continued gratitude to Carnegie Corporation of New York which provides ongoing support for this endeavor.
