The essays in this volume confront the historical, political, socioeconomic, and cultural dimensions of the European Union's relationship with Africa. Following the high imperial period of the nineteenth century, many in Europe encouraged the development of a partnership called "Eurafrique," which would have granted European industries privileged access to African resources. This book begins with Europe's attempts to refashion its relations with Africa, particularly after several countries achieved independence in the 1960s. At the same time, it details the historical processes behind Europe's own quest for unity and follows with an exploration of the strategic aspects of Europe and Africa's relationship today.
Contributors particularly focus on the place of Africa within the EU's pursuit of global partnerships. Key topics include trade and investment, security and governance, migration and identity, and the potential legacy of contemporary relations. The volume closely analyzes key European players, such as France, Britain, Portugal, and Scandinavia, within the context of the EU. It also examines Europe's controversial immigration policies and complex interactions with the Maghreb and the Mediterranean, as well as perceptions of past and present European identity. The study concludes with a probing look at whether Africa and Europe have escaped the burden of their shared history and whether a future "Afro-Europa" relationship, defined by genuine equality, partnership, and mutual self-interest, can be achieved.
