Julia Gallagher joins Gilbert Khadiagal, Andrew E. Yaw Tchie, and Diana Villiers Negroponte for a webinar on 'The Future of Africa-UK Relations Post-Brexit' hosted by Wilson Centre.
The United Kingdom has left the European Union as part of a momentous effort to redefine the UK's role in the world - with tremendous consequences for its global partners, including many of the countries in Africa. How do African countries view their relationship with the UK? What will be the future of Africa-UK relations after Brexit?
Outlining plans for foreign policy and security in its annual Integrated Review, the United Kingdom has explicitly referenced strengthening its bilateral relations with key African countries, such as Nigeria. How will the UK and its African partners together address shared challenges ranging from peace and security, immigration, and the ongoing global health crisis and vaccine rollouts?
