    Strengthening the digital partnership between Africa and Europe

Cooperation between Africa and Europe stands to benefit from digital technologies. Yet, without the right resources, policies and infrastructure, there’s a risk of worsening digital divides and of digital technologies being misused. Our digital economy and governance team wants to promote digital cooperation within and between Africa and Europe as a way to advance sustainable development.


Our work


Topics we look at include:

  • The EU’s geostrategic interests in its digital cooperation with Africa
  • The role of of digital tools in African regional integration
  • Digital infrastructure investments and financial services
  • Digital regulation and governance
  • Digital transformation for human development
