IIAS-SEAPP Doha Conference 2023

African countries, both developmental and non-developmental states, have subscribed to  African Union’s (AU) Agenda 2063 (AU, 2014) and United Nations (UN) 2030 Agenda (UN, 2015), both putting increasing pressure on African countries. The UN in Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) SDG 16 emphasizes building effective, accountable, and inclusive institutions at all levels (UN, 2015; 2017). Agenda 2063 is ideologically underpinned by Pan-Africanism and African Renaissance, suggesting pan-African public administration (AU, 2014). However, research on politico-administrative and public policy reforms and the progress and challenges to achieving pan-African public administration and SDG16 are very scarce. Comparative research on public administration and public policy from an African perspective is almost unavailable.
