To complicate matters, some African countries are still grappling with the conception of “statehood,” since, in many cases, the state was an imposition of European colonialism. In this latest Atlantic Council Strategy Paper, Atlantic Council Vice President and Africa Center Director Dr. J. Peter Pham argues that the United States needs to modernize its relations with a changing Africa to best engage a new range of actors and circumstances.
The change of US administration in January offers a unique opportunity to recalibrate US strategy toward a rapidly transforming continent.
Please join the Atlantic Council for a conversation with Amanda Dory, deputy assistant secretary of defense for African Affairs, and General Carter Ham, USA (Ret.), former commander of US Africa Command, on the future of US strategy in Africa.
The Atlantic Council Strategy Papers series is designed to enrich the public debate and build consensus on the great strategic challenges of our time, as well as to help shape strategic thinking in US and allied governments, the private and nonprofit sectors, and the global media.
