The European Union in Africa

Incoherent policies, asymmetrical partnership, declining relevance?

Maurizio Carbone

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Provides a comprehensive analysis of EU-Africa relations since the beginning of the twenty-first century and includes (most of) the leading experts in the field of EU external relations
  • Includes chapters on very controversial topics like climate change, migration, energy, social policies
  • Challenges a number of widely-held assumptions on the role of the EU in Africa, and at the same time sheds light the role and identity of the EU in the international arena
  • Argues that the EU has faced competition from China and other emerging powers, but has not lost its position of privilege in Africa
  • Shows that African countries find ways to avoid, resist, or re-configure EU policies
