Who are we ?

The Alliance for Rebuilding Governance in Africa (ARGA) is is a pan-African organization (Think Tank-Think Do) that believes that peace and development on the African continent cannot be achieved through simple reforms of the way in which public affairs are regulated, but are contingent on an in-depth re-examination of the foundations of power and governance.

Since 20 years, the Alliance for Rebuilding Governance in Africa contributes to the development of an African way of thinking and an African governance project.

An African way of thinking

Our continent must create its own version of modernity and its own future on the basis of:

  • a grounding in African history, values and realities,
  • enrichment with international experiences.

An African project of governance

To meet the current and future challenges of the African continent, this change must be:

  • systemic because of the number and scope of problems and challenges at all levels of governance—from the local to the global,
  • part of a long-term process because of the profound intellectual, institutional and cultural transformations involved,
  • accepted and supported by all State and non-State actors
