Promoting Stability and Development in Africa:
How to Foster Cooperation between Public and
Edited by Marta Martinelli and Nicoletta Pirozzi
The Istituto Affari Internazionali has published a new edited volume assessing Africa’s potential in the security, governance and development spheres.
Entitled, Promoting Stability and Development in Africa: How to Foster Cooperation between Public and Private Sectors, the volume analyses the potential for increased public-private cooperation across Africa. Sub-Saharan Africa is today marked by enduring instability, mass migrations and crises, but at the same time positive developments tied to economic growth and regional integration are also part of the picture. In assessing these contemporary trends and the potential for public-private cooperation in Africa, individual contributions focus on three distinct sectors: economic policies and sustainable development; good governance and democracy; peace and security.
Research on relevant regions in Sub-Saharan Africa and the key countries of Ethiopia, Mozambique, Nigeria and South Africa, has been conducted by African and European experts drawn from a number of fields. A series of policy recommendations for each case study are offered to the European Union on how best to tackle these opportunities in cooperation with new and old actors emerging across Africa.
The volume marks the conclusion of a project, Promoting Stability and Development in Africa, run by IAI and the Foundation for European Progressive Studies (FEPS) with the support of the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation. The publication will be presented during an international conference, “Fostering Stability and Development in Sub-Saharan Africa”, to be held in Brussels on 10 February 2016.
