Africa – European Union Relations: A common future?

Africa – European Union relations have a long history that goes back even before the decolonization period. Today, however, the context on both continents has changed so much that the next period is going to be fundamental for shaping new approaches.

On the one hand, on the African continent we see actors such as China, India, Russia, Turkey, the Middle Eastern countries, Brazil, starting to play an increasingly important role and bringing approaches different from those of the European Union. On the other hand, within the EU, the number of Member States increased, Brexit happened, the relations with the Russian Federation are increasingly difficult, while the financial, migration and public health crises bear a significant imprint on the EU’s unity and ability to act in a concerted manner.
