Central and Eastern Europe and Sub-Saharan Africa Relations: Opportunities for Cooperation

In recent years, a number of governments in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) and sub-Saharan Africa have sought to renew their relations. Exploring the respective experiences of countries in both CEE and sub-Saharan Africa over the last three decades may help to identify areas for exchange and cooperation for economic transformation, institutional strengthening and to improve outcomes for citizens. Cooperation in areas such as anticorruption, green growth or e-governance in support of service delivery are examples that could yield mutually beneficial results and provide the foundations for future relations. 

This private roundtable provides an opportunity to discuss some of these issues to inform a Chatham House project, supported by Robert Bosch Stiftung, which examines CEE-Africa relations and areas for shared learning and mutually beneficial cooperation.

Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
