Africa Report 2019. Cross-border dynamics in a globalised context

Since the beginning of the 21st century, Africa has attracted growing interest from numerous international actors, not only the BRICS but some Middle Eastern states as well, including the Gulf countries and Turkey. The economic growth experienced by several states within the continent, as well as the growing presence of new counterparts, generates both awareness and concern among the former colonial metropoles, other Western States and international financial institutions. Armed conflict in some areas, migration, and population growth have also generated increasing attention towards Africa. Spain is no stranger to this trend, as reflected by the Spanish Government’s approval of the III Africa Plan in March 2019. After seven years without a programmatic document in regard to the continent, Spain manifests a willingness to consolidate and deepen its relations with Africa. If Spain’s goal is to strengthen these links, it needs all-embracing knowledge and a better understanding of what happens in the continent. This Africa Report 2019: Cross-border dynamics in a globalised context aims at contributing to this endeavour.
