African Coups, European Impacts? | BRUBBLE: Voices from the Brussels Bubble BRUBBLE

    • News

According to EC President von der Leyen, EU Africa relations are a key focus for our union. Thus, it was quite concerning to see, during the late summer/early autumn of 2023, a new wave of undemocratic coups sweeping across Africa, particularly targeting Mali, Guinea, Burkina Faso, Niger, and Gabon. Thus, a few months now removed from these coups, it might be an apt point to look back and reflect a bit on the EU-Africa relationship.

So, how has the EU-Africa relationship changed over the past few years? What are the perspectives on both sides? And how is this relationship continuing to change, especially highlighted by these recent coups?

Joining me to provide some expertise on these big topics are Kawsar and Ricardo!
