Fighting for Africa: External Power competition in the Red Sea & Sahel

The Policy Center for the New South recently partnered with the Atlantic Council Africa Center on a pair of reports exploring the evolving roles of both traditional and emerging external powers in Africa in the post-COVID era. In its report, Emerging Powers in Africa: Key Drivers, Differing Interests, and Future Perspectives, the PCNS outlines how emerging powers are muscling their way into African markets, crowding a region already beset with security challenges. The complementary Africa Center report, African Agency in the New Cold War: Traditional Power Competition in the Post-COVID-19 African Landscape, focuses on Africa’s traditional external powers breaking down the economic and security flash-points that a “new Cold War” could precipitate, while noting with optimism the significant room for African agency even in sensitive fields like Chinese debt and global tech competition.

AD Talks 2020: Covid-19 and International Trade

Covid-19 triggered the worst and most synchronized global recession in recorded history, albeit - on current evidence - a short-lived one. The global recession was reflected in a precipitous fall in world trade, which is now recovering. The backlash against trade and globalization long preceded the pandemic, but as a result of the economic hardship it causes, public opinion in many countries has soured even more against imports and outsourcing. Most evident is the drive towards reduced reliance on the importation of medicines and medical equipment, products which mainly originate in a small number of countries, led by China.
