Africa has long been considered marginal to the world in both economic and political terms. This important volume seeks to rectify this, arguing that over the centuries there has been a continual flow of both ideas and goods between Africa, Europe, Asia, and later the Americas. Indeed, Africa has never existed apart from world politics, but has been unavoidably entangled in the ebb and flow of events and changing configurations of power. Africa in International Politics examines and compares external involvement in the continent, exploring the foreign policies of major states and international organisations towards it. Drawing on critical approaches from International Relations, International Political Economy and Security Studies, the book sets out a framework for understanding Africa's place in world politics and provides detailed analyses of the major external states and international organisations currently influencing African politics. At the same time, Africa is viewed as a player in its own right whose behaviour and agency acts to define, in many cases, the policies and even identities of external agents. This book provides the first comprehensive, critical and up-to-date analysis of the policies of the major external actors towards Africa after the Cold War. The chapters focus on the policies of the United States, the UK, France, China, Russia, Japan and Canada, as well as the European Union, International Financial Institutions and United Nations peacekeeping.

Work Description

Africa has long been considered marginal to the world in both economic and political terms. This important volume seeks to rectify this, arguing that over the centuries there has been a continual flow of both ideas and goods between Africa, Europe, Asia, and later the Americas.

Africa in International Politics examines and compares external involvement in the continent, exploring the foreign policies of major states and international organisations towards it. Drawing on critical approaches from International Relations, International Political Economy and Security Studies, the book sets out a framework for understanding Africa's place in world politics and provides detailed analyses of the major external states and international organisations currently influencing African politics.
