Restoring the AU-EU partnership in times of crises
The 3rd EU-AU foreign affairs ministers’ meeting, planned for 20 November 2023, will no longer go ahead, which is perhaps another sign of increasing tensions within and between the two continents. In light of this, ECDPM will host an online discussion on the state of the Europe-Africa relationship. Mariella Di Ciommo (associate director, Europe and Africa in the World, ECDPM) will moderate a conversation between Geert Laporte (senior executive, ECDPM) and Doudou Dia (executive director, Gorée Institute) who will be joining her live from Dakar.
During the conversation, they will discuss how the relationship between the AU and the EU has evolved in the last years; how the geopolitical context and a series of crises has affected the partnership and will look at the agenda for the AU-EU ministerial and try to suggest ways to move forward.
