Le président Tshisekedi a initié, à partir de 2019, une refonte significative de la politique étrangère de la République démocratique du Congo (RDC) et des objectifs qui lui sont assignés. Cette redéfinition stratégique, marquée par un important activisme sur les plans international et continental, a permis à la RDC de briser l’isolement diplomatique auquel elle faisait face depuis 2016, de reprendre la coopération avec plusieurs partenaires importants et de redynamiser sa présence au sein des organisations internationales et des Communautés économiques régionales. Ce Policy Brief vise à analyser les fondements de cette nouvelle approche en matière de politique étrangère ainsi qu’à établir un bilan des actions entreprises par la RDC sur le plan extérieur depuis l'alternance.

    African states are in a vulnerable position. The invasion of Ukraine could affect food security and trigger a spike in oil prices, inflicting economic duress on African households. The Black Sea region is home to vast fertile farmlands, and war in the “breadbasket of the world” could threaten wheat and fertilizer supplies. Increased economic hardship and social discontent do not bode well for democratic governance in Africa, especially in light of the recent spate of military coups. ...

    “Turkey’s turn to Africa is the result of several factors: the economic liberalization process undertaken in the 1990s, Ankara’s aim for greater voice in international institutions, and Turkey's rivalry with Egypt and the Gulf states. Scholars have observed that Turkey's public diplomacy, which some have dubbed the “Ankara consensus” is consciously designed as an alternative to the Washington consensus of neoliberal economic growth and the Beijing consensus of state-led growth, that ...

    Although it has largely gone unnoticed in France, the agreement signed on December 3, 2020 between the European Union (EU) and the Organisation of African, Caribbean and Pacific States (ACP) is a major shift in the long-standing relations between the EU and countries in the Global South. The EU established a development assistance policy as early as the Treaty of Rome in 1957, signed the first cooperation agreement in 1963, and nowadays is often the largest donor to these countries, ...

    Due to historical as well as geographical reasons, India and East Africa have long been close partners. In the recent period however, and even more so since the early 2000s, these ties have tightened as a result of combined efforts by the government of India and its business community. The presence of communities of Indian origin in several East African countries has also acted as a catalyst. East Africa is perceived as a valuable partner both by Indian authorities and by Indian pr ...
