Reviving Tanzania’s regional leadership and global engagement

This webinar will launch a new Chatham House research paper which explores the key considerations for Tanzania’s foreign policy review.

Research event, Panel
21 May 2024 — 2:00PM TO 3:30PM

Under the leadership of President Samia Suluhu Hassan since 2021, Tanzania has begun to re-emerge from a period of relative international insularity under her predecessor. In 2022, Tanzania commissioned an official review of its foreign policy – seeking a first refresh of official strategy for over two decades. This review provides a chance to consolidate the country’s revival as an economic and diplomatic leader: embracing its strategic regional position between East and southern Africa, and reconnecting with a history of global influence and multilateral cooperation.

A new research paper, Reviving Tanzania’s regional leadership and global engagement: Priorities for an effective foreign policy reset, explores the key considerations for this foreign policy review and provides recommendations for policymakers to take bolder steps to consolidate Tanzania’s international revival. At this webinar event, which will officially launch the research paper, speakers will outline the research findings and present an opportunity for discussion on the wider implications of Tanzania’s foreign policy review, which will officially be concluded this year.

This webinar and the research paper it launches are part of a project on Tanzania’s Foreign Policy Agenda: Economic Diplomacy and International Agency, supported by the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung (KAS) Tanzania office.

The event will be broadcast live on the Africa Programme Facebook page.
