The transatlantic partnership in Africa

Event information


Event description

Organized by the Atlantic Council’s Africa Center and Europe Center in cooperation with the Delegation of the European Union to the United States. This discussion featuring officials and experts serves as a timely opportunity to engage in a high-level conversation following the EU-AU Summit, which took place in Brussels on February 17, 2022. The conversation will focus on the joint vision for a renewed partnership that EU and AU leaders agreed on at the Summit and its relevance in the context of EU-U.S. cooperation in Africa. Panelists will also discuss the substantial investment plan recently announced by the European Union (Global Gateway), the consequences of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine for Africa, in particular with regard to energy and food security, as well as people-to-people ties.

Join the Africa Center online to participate in this event on Thursday, June 16, 2022, from 9:30 am to 11:30 am ET. The event will be on the record. Please reach out to Tyrell Junius at with any questions.
