Re-Centering Governance in EU-Africa Relations
As European foreign policy pivots south, EU-Africa relations are an important priority of the current German Presidency of the EU Council. While the COVID-19 crisis has forced Germany to change focus, shifting the EU’s long-term partnership with Africa remains a key policy concern. Germany’s presidency of the EU Council provides an opportunity to address structural challenges revealed by the current crisis, and to set the intercontinental partnership on track for a more sustainable and equitable future.
Where do European and African interests meet, and where do they diverge? Can a new partnership advance good governance? What role can the German EU Presidency play in this? And which issues should be prioritized at the EU-Africa Summit, now postponed to 2021?
