MSU Research History: Documenting African Perspectives

1999 – Three independent survey research projects merge to form the Afrobarometer, which would become a nonpartisan, long-term study of African citizens’ attitudes on democracy and governance, the economy, civil society, and other topics.

Afrobarometer is led by cofounders Michael Bratton, University Distinguished Professor of Political Science and African Studies at Michigan State University; Robert Mattes, professor of Political Studies and director of the Democracy in Africa Research Unit at the University of Cape Town; and E Gyimah-Boadi, executive director of Center for Democratic Development (CDD-Ghana).
