Europe, the U.S., and Africa: New Interests, Initiatives, and Partners

June 12, 2014 // 3:30pm5:00pm
Event Co-sponsors: 
Africa Program

In the past, the world scrambled for Africa to win slaves, territory, and resources. Today, the world scrambles with Africa to do business in global markets. Ludger Kühnhardt, a Global Fellow with the Center’s Global Europe Program, launches his new book Africa Consensus: New Interests, Initiatives, and Partners. Kühnhardt argues that new African politics, African regional institutions, and global demand for partnerships in trade and security will lead the continent to new relationships with the United States, the European Union, and a number of emerging economies. He advocates for a global compact with a changing Africa, based on learning from past experiences and recognizing African ownership. The U.S and Europe, he argues, should take the lead as this is a new and ever increasing test case for the global maturation of transatlantic relations. Copies of the book will be available for purchase.
