Top Five Reasons Why Africa Should Be a Priority for the United States
Released in March 2013, this report from the Brookings Institution’s African Growth Initiative provides compelling information on why the African continent should be a public policy priority for the United States. The report is divided into five short sections, including “China in Africa: Implications for U.S. Competition and Diplomacy,” “Transforming the U.S.-African Commercial Relationship,” and “Advancing Peace and Security in Africa.” It’s a timely work that sets out a cogent argument and will be of particular interest to public policy scholars, journalists, and others interested in global politics.

The Mission of the EUISS is to find a common security culture for the EU, to help develop and project the CFSP, and to enrich Europe’s strategic debate. As a think tank it researches security issues of relevance for the EU and provides a forum for debate. In its capacity as an EU agency, it also offers analyses and forecasting to the High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy.
Occasional Papers are essays or reports that the Institute considers should be made available as a contribution to the debate on specific issues relevant to European security. They may be based on work carried out by researchers granted awards by the EUISS, on contributions prepared by external experts, and on collective research projects or other activities organised by (or with the support of) the Institute.
Occasional Papers will be available on request in the language – either English or French – used by authors.
