Africa: Year in Review 2017
As 2018 unfolds, it is critical to reflect on the key developments that occurred in Africa and in U.S.-Africa relations over the past year. The Wilson Center Africa Program asked experts, scholars, and policymakers to weigh in on the most important and impactful developments of 2017 for the continent and their implications for U.S.-Africa relations. They responded with the brief and insightful essays in this volume.
We thank them for their contributions, which provide analysis on topics including the Trump Administration and Africa; Mugabe’s ouster in Zimbabwe; the role of agriculture in Africa and in U.S.-Africa relations; the challenges and opportunities for youth and for elections in Africa, among other topics.
We hope that you enjoy the volume!
