The relationship between Africa and Europe is of high strategic importance. This volume studies the ongoing dynamics between the two continents by adopting a pluralist understanding of international relations which encompasses non-state actors as well as states.
Going beyond pure intergovernmentalism, this focus of this book is on activists, business people, religious believers, local politicians as well as transnational networks and by hybrid coalitions. Such plurality of socio-economic and political interactions underpinning the relationship between Africa and Europe is underexamined and yet of great importance. The text identifies new patterns of cooperation and recurrent obstacles in the African-European multistakeholder dynamics, thus opening the way for a more accurate understanding of the future relationship between Africa and Europe.
This book brings African and European reflections together, on an equal standing, in order to achieve a true dialogue among civilizations. This book is aimed at all those who are interested in the African-European relationship, including students and researchers, as well as activists, business people, civil servant and functionaries at local and national level.

World Politics and Dialogue of Civilizations Series
This new series focuses on the key challenges in world politics with a critical and pluralist angle.
It assumes that mutual understanding is the fundamental prerequisite for humankind’s inclusive development, and that open, respectful, and equitable dialogue among different cultural and civilizational frameworks is essential in these times of dramatic global change and uncertainty for developing effective cooperation and partnership.
The series aims to explore alternative models of the social, political and economic developments at regional and world levels in order to advance theoretical understanding, promote political debate, and provide policy-oriented advice on six broad macro-areas:
The series is linked to the research carried out by the Dialogue of Civilization-DoC Research Institute (Berlin), but it is open to external contribution. Indeed, dissonant voices/opinions, if adequately formulated, are welcome in the debate that the series encourages.
Different formats apply to the series, ranging from ‘short-form’ issue based polemical/discussion readers on key topics to standard monograph length more academic titles and research edited collections.
