The end of Françafrique?: Macron’s new Africa strategy

Recently, French president Emmanuel Macron came back from a tour to Africa where he visited Gabon, Angola and the two Congos. Just ahead of his visit, he presented France’s new strategy for Africa, a strategy that should be seen against a backdrop where anti-French sentiment has been running high in West Africa and where France has withdrawn a lot of its military presence. In this episode of the Nordic Africa Podcast, we discuss trade, migration, neo-colonialism, cultural heritage and other aspects of Africa-France relations together with:

  • Cristiano Lanzano, senior researcher at the Nordic Africa Institute.
  • Papa Sow, senior researcher at the Nordic Africa Institute
  • Marie Deridder, researcher at the Forum for Africa Studies at Uppsala University
