Following the Trump administration’s unilateral and confrontational approach to international affairs, the election of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris promises to steer a new course for American foreign policy with a renewed focus on multilateralism. Where Africa sits in this shift is not altogether clear. Tensions with China will not disappear overnight while the links between Black Lives Matter and social movements on the Continent, including the EndSars campaign, creates a febrile social backdrop. In this webinar Invest Africa will offer an update on the state of US-Africa policy and discuss the geopolitical implications of Joe Biden’s election for the region.
Key discussion points:
Where does the election of Joe Biden mean for the future of the Prosper Africa initiative?
What opportunities do tensions with China offer African countries to reposition their relationship with the United States?
How will Joe Biden’s multilateral approach to international relations impact the US’s relationship with Africa?
How might a Biden-Harris administration approach the election of Nigeria’s Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala to the Head of the World Trade Organisation?
