Only a few months after the African Union (AU)–European Union (EU) Summit in Brussels, the partnership is being tested. The EU’s Strategic Compass seeks a more ambitious and capable security sector in the face of evolving threats. And AU reforms aim to better position the body to deal with new challenges.

In this context, what is the value-add of the EU–AU partnership? How do we prevent marginal differences from affecting our ability to jointly respond to global cross-border challenges? And how do we enlist other strategic partners?

Returning, in person, to the City of London on 28 June 2022, our 9th Hogan Lovells Africa Forum, Africa: On the Move, considers what it is going to take to get the wheels of change turning to push the continent towards a sustainable, accelerated growth.

‘Post-pandemic recovery’. This remains one of the most popular phrases when considering Africa’s economic outlook in 2022, and indeed how commentators continue to frame regional analysis globally. Estimations from the IMF point to modest growth from 3.7% this year to 3.8% in 2023, linked to increased inflation rates and an anticipated slowdown in the global economy, overlayed by the impact of geopolitical events outside of Africa. The effects of the pandemic can certainly not be ignored, with the continent having experienced an ‘almost fully synchronised economic downturn in 2020'. Africa’s emergence from recession in 2021 has not only improved sentiments about recovery, it has revitalised and renewed the region’s pre-pandemic optimism; Africa is on the move.
