Promoting Stability and Development in Africa: How to Foster Cooperation between Public and Private Sectors

L'Africa sta vivendo una delle più profonde trasformazioni della sua storia. L'Africa sub-sahariana è caratterizzata ancora oggi da una continua instabilità e da migrazioni di massa e crisi, ma allo stesso tempo anche da sviluppi positivi tra cui la crescita economica e l'integrazione regionale. Questo volume illustra tali cambiamenti da tre diverse angolazioni: le politiche economiche e lo sviluppo sostenibile; il buon governo e la democrazia; la pace e la sicurezza. Esperti africani ed europei hanno condotto ricerche nelle regioni d'interesse dell'Africa sub-sahariana e in alcuni paesi chiave (Etiopia, Mozambico, Nigeria e Sud Africa) con l'obiettivo di valutare il ruolo del settore privato e determinarne le potenziali opportunità di collaborazione con il settore pubblico. All'Unione europea viene fornita una serie di raccomandazioni politiche su come sviluppare queste opportunità, in collaborazione con vecchi e nuovi attori.

Prodotto nell'ambito del progetto di ricerca "Promoting Stability and Development in Africa: How to Foster Cooperation between Public and Private Sectors" condotta dall'Istituto Affari Internazionali (IAI) e dalla Foundation for European Progressive Studies (FEPS), con il sostegno del Ministero degli Affari esteri e della Cooperazione internazionale. Presentato alla conferenza "Fostering Stability and Development in Sub-Saharan Africa: Analysis and Perspectives on Public-Private Partnerships", Bruxelles, 10 febbraio 2016.
