The African Good Governance Network (AGGN) comprises a group of highly educated African academics who are dedicated to Good Governance principles. Due to their qualifications they are expected to be among future decision makers in sub-Saharan Africa.

AGGN is a vibrant network of peers, who promote the values of Good Governance and promote processes of democratisation by accompanying the economic and political transformation in their home countries.

The network was founded in 2007 by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) and consists of African scholars who are currently studying in Germany or have graduated from a German university.
