The West and Africa

Event details

Although most African countries are former European colonies, they are economically increasingly tied to Asia. As trade and infrastructure from China steadily shift Africa’s gaze eastward, the continent’s traditional partnerships are being tested by migration, populism and the fall-out of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

This seminar is the third in a series on how global developments could impact Africa. It will examine relations between North America, Europe and Africa under four scenarios: a Divided World, a World at War, a Growth World and a Sustainable World.
