About the pillar

The Africa Center believes in the power of multilateralism and recognizes the need to consolidate cooperation within the international community as it faces an ever-expanding list of common challenges and transnational issues. As Africa emerges at the epicenter of today’s most pressing challenges, it is imperative that the continent is fairly and equitably represented on the world stage. That is why we are working to ensure African voices, organizations, and solutions, both on the continent and throughout the global diaspora, are included in multilateral affairs among the leading international governing bodies, financial institutions, and non-governmental networks. Strengthening Africa’s global presence can create new pathways for collective breakthroughs in health, sustainable technology, trade, security, and more.

The Africa Center works to promote dynamic geopolitical partnerships with African states and to redirect US and European policy priorities toward strengthening security and bolstering economic growth and prosperity on the continent.
