A VIEW FROM THE RIGHT: REPUBLICAN PERSPECTIVES ON US- AFRICA POLICY - The Africa Center is pleased to welcome former House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce and former US Special Envoy for the Sahel Region J. Peter Pham, hosted by Africa Center Senior Director Rama Yade, for an event on Republican views toward US-Africa relations. Following a conversation with two Democrat members of the US Congress in May, this event will help inform a greater understanding of a bipartisan approach to US foreign policy toward Africa; it will also include discussion about current developments on the continent.
Leading up to the 78th United Nations General Assembly, the Africa Center will be assessing the renewal of the African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA), congressional oversight of US foreign policy in Africa, great power competition on the continent, instability in the Sahel and Great Lakes regions, and the war in Ukraine’s consequences for Africa. The Atlantic Council’s Africa Center continues to host premier voices on US-Africa policy as part of its mission to shape the global future.
