India-Africa Relations: The Next Phase
Dr Sumit Roy, Visiting Senior Research Fellow, School of International Relations and Strategic Studies, Jadavpur University, Kolkata, India
Chair: Alex Vines, Research Director, Regional and Security Studies, and Head, Africa Programme, Chatham House
India’s re-engagement in a growing number of countries is attracting growing international interest. Yet, as with interest in Chinese engagements in Africa until recently, there are a lack of sufficiently diverse Indian perspectives on this increasingly important trend apparent in Western discourse. Dr Roy will offer some insights as to where this growing interest is likely to lead over coming years, and comment on what this might mean for Africa.
