Towards a redesigned Euro-African partnership

Aligning the continents of Africa and Europe with each other is now an existential imperative for Europe, at a time of growing security and migration threats, if it wants to continue to have influence in the world arena in the face of China and the USA.

Juncker or European added value. The positive legacy of the European Commission (2014-2019)
