The Centre for the Study of Governance Innovation (GovInn), the European Union Delegation to South Africa and the South African Institute of International Affairs (SAIIA) are delighted to invite you to the launch.

South African Journal of International Affairs Special Issue on ‘Broadening the debate on EU Africa relations: Towards reciprocal approaches’. The special issue, produced with guest editors John Kotsopoulos and Frank Mattheis of the Centre for the Study of Governance Innovation at the University of Pretoria, is the culmination of a multi-year project seeking to address gaps in the analysis of Africa European Union (EU) relations. Specifically, the special issue responds to the fact that, while a significant body of literature exists about the relationship between the EU and Africa, there is comparatively little analysis emanating from Africa itself. In addressing this, special issue authors respond to questions such as: how is a growing awareness and projection of African agency changing the relationship between the EU and the continent? Where are we observing innovative areas of interaction between the EU and Africa? How can problem areas be rethought and how can contrasting perspectives be better communicated between the EU and Africa?

We are delighted to assemble partners and contributors of the special issue to discuss key findings. They are:

Dr Frank Mattheis, Centre for the Study of Governance Innovation at the University of Pretoria, and a guest co-editor of this special issue.

Dr Martha Bridgman, Editor, South African Journal of International Affairs (SAJIA).

Special Issue authors, including Professor Jo-Ansie van Wyk, (UNISA), Professor John Mugabe (University of Pretoria), and Dr Petronella Chaminuka (Agricultural Research Council, Pretoria).

Closing remarks will be made by Mr Raul de Luzenberger, Deputy Head, European Union Delegation to South Africa.

Until mid-March 2019, the special issue is free to view online
