The  African Governance and Development Institute (AGDI) was founded by Dr Simplice Asongu in June 2009. AGDI is an unfunded research institute whose mission consists in generating and disseminating knowledge for the development of African societies.

The academic rigor of the research conducted under the aegis of AGDI is proved by the fact that nearly 50% of working papers in the AGDI Working Paper Series (AGDI WPS) are either published or forthcoming in internationally reputable, peer-reviewed journals.

The list of AGDI working papers can be found here:
