Group Description

The African Programme on Rethinking Development Economics (APORDE) is a high-level training programme in development economics aimed at building capacity in Africa. It is a joint initiative of the South African Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), the Embassy of France in South Africa, the French Agency for Development (AFD) and the French Institute of South Africa (IFAS).
APORDE’s main aim is to train policy makers, researchers and civil society representatives from Africa and other developing countries; the strategic selection of participants is therefore key to its success, both immediate (the programme itself) and future (the impact that participants will have on policy in their home countries).
APORDE allows talented academics, policy makers and trade unionists to gain access to alternatives to mainstream thinking on development issues and to be equipped in a way that will foster original thinking. Participants receives intensive high-level training, interact with some of the best development economists in the world and with other participants from Africa and beyond. Participation to the programme is competitive and fully funded .
APORDE consist of teaching sessions which include lectures, workshops and public lectures. Highly qualified development economists from all over the world are invited to lecture, with special attention to lecturers from Africa for the main purpose of having them benefit from the expertise of local economists while allowing them to interact with international colleagues.
Participants are selected through an application process and they are drawn from a broad range of backgrounds, reflecting the three main target groups of APORDE (government, civil society and academia).
