The Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs is currently in the process of developing a new Norwegian strategy for Africa.
Africa, with its 55 states, is developing fast and the changing geopolitical situation in the world is also an important backdrop. Many countries in the world are now intensifying their diplomatic ties with African countries.
For the last decade the African continent has seen economic growth, population growth, demand for rare mineral resources and climate change. African countries are both experiencing great possibilities and challenges. What does this mean for Norway’s partnership with African countries and what should we prioritize the coming years?
What are the most important goals a new Africa strategy should contain? How do Norway ensure that the strategy considers the different historic and political context of each country and promote African states’ own agency and development on their terms? And what role could and should the African diaspora in Norway play in this process and in developing foreign and development policies in general?
After the introductions and conversation we will open up for questions and input from the audience.
Last panelists TBA!
