Turkey's Engagement in Sub-Saharan Africa
Since 2005, Turkish engagement in sub-Saharan Africa has risen exponentially. As Turkey seeks to diversify its partner base and extend its international influence, Ankara’s economic, strategic and diplomatic interests in the region have become a significant element of Turkey’s global agenda. The continent’s emerging markets and resource wealth are seen as key engines for Turkish growth.
This event will bring together expert speakers from business, government, academia and international organizations to explore Turkey’s strategic engagement in sub-Saharan Africa, its aid and humanitarian footprint, business links and the role that education plays in Turkey-Africa relations.
This event is hosted together with Coventry University’s African Studies Centre and Sabanci University’s Istanbul Policy Center.
Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
