The year 2017 will herald some important events and milestones in EU-Africa relations. The fifth triennial EU-Africa Summit is scheduled to take place in November, while discussions continue apace about the future of the EU-ACP Cotonou Agreement after 2020. This year also marks the 10th anniversary of the EU-South Africa Strategic Partnership, a landmark for the EU and its only strategic partner on the continent.
The aims of this workshop are twofold: to begin to redress the underrepresentation of African perspectives in the broader discourse about EU-Africa relations and, by extension, to broaden epistemological approaches to interpreting the relationship.
ECDPM’s Luckystar Miyandazi will sit on the panel discussing ‘Exploring the dynamics of EU-Africa relations.’
