Workshop on EU-Africa Relations

A one-day workshop reflecting on the state of EU-Africa relations will be held in early June at the University of Pretoria, South Africa. This will be the inaugural event of ESA-SSA.

Taking place in Africa, the workshop will capitalize on its geographic position to highlight views from the continent about this long-standing and sometimes problematic relationship. EU-Africa relations are moving beyond that of donor and client to reflect changing circumstances in Africa and Europe.

This workshop will highlight some of these changes, including the roles of African agency and innovation in changing the terms of the relationship. Focus will also be placed on multilateral issues that are of priority to Africans vis a vis the EU, such as migration, agriculture and protectionism, and peace and security cooperation.
