Africa Consensus

New Interests, Initiatives, and Partners

In the past, the world scrambled for Africa to win slaves, territory, and resources. Today, the world scrambles with Africa to do business in global markets. In Africa Consensus: New Interests, Initiatives, and Partners, Ludger Kühnhardt argues that new African politics, African regional institutions, and global demand for partnerships for trade and security will lead the continent to new relationships with the United States, the European Union, China, India, Brazil, and other emerging economies.

Kühnhardt reviews the history of Africa’s international status and employs the rising African Union’s own identified "intervention areas"—peace and security; development, integration, and cooperation; shared values; and institution- and capacity-building—to analyze challenges and possibilities.

About the Author

Endorsements

By linking Africa's current display of economic dynamism... to global changes that are underway, Kühnhardt revisits and goes beyond major historical themes and narratives. In the process, he elevates the continent as a global agenda-setting actor.

Africa Consensus is the rare book that treats Africa as the complex region that it is. Kühnhardt is experienced enough to put that complexity front and center... and his distillations are nuanced enough to successfully describe a continent that is transforming before our very eyes and playing an ever-growing role in all aspects of the global economy and community. Students of Africa have a new place to begin.

- K. Y. Amoako, President and Founder, African Center for Economic Transformation
