How will global futures affect intra-Africa relations?
This seminar will assess the impact of four global scenarios on relations between African countries.
Date: 06 September 2022
Time: 14h00 – 15h30
Venue: Online via Zoom
Together with COVID-19, the shifts in global power and influence that have followed Russia’s invasion of Ukraine can be compared with events after the collapse of the Berlin Wall. The implications are however unclear, especially for Africa.
This seminar will explore how four global scenarios could impact on ties between African states and the associated changes in power relations. The four global scenarios are a Divided World (current trajectory), a World at War, a Sustainable World or a Growth World.
