A New Strategy for U.S. Engagement in North Africa
Karim El Aynaoui, President of the Policy Center for the New South, will speak at a session under the theme “A New Strategy for U.S. Engagement in North Africa”. The discussion (webinar by invitation) organized by Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, will take place on Thursday, February 25, 2021, 10:00 – 11:00 a.m. EST.
Ten years after the Arab Spring, the socioeconomic and governance grievances that fueled the 2010-2011 uprisings are still prevalent across North Africa, and many have worsened in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite North African activists and officials pushing for reform, the region has received little U.S. support. Now, the new Biden administration has an opportunity to prioritize North Africa. The United States can ensure long-term stability by working with European and multilateral partners to counter Russian and Chinese influence and support the people’s demands for greater voice and accountability in the region. Join us for a keynote with Daniel Rubinstein on the U.S. approach towards North Africa, followed by a discussion with Youssef Cherif, Karim El Aynaoui, and Nancy Okail assessing the challenges and opportunities for U.S. engagement in North Africa under the Biden administration.Keep me informed
