With security, migratory, and economic pressures rising in Africa and Europe, many analysts agree that a strong partnership between the two is imperative to the prosperity of both continents. This event will bring together a group of experts, EU and AU officials, and civil society to develop pragmatic approaches to address the geopolitical obstacles facing a successful EU-Africa partnership. This discussion will not only consider how to strengthen the EU’s competitive advantage, but also explore avenues for new partnership models, and potential collaboration with China and other regional powers.
