Securing the 21st Century : Mapping India-Africa Engagement

Edited by : Ihssane Guennoun , Ritika Passi , Rim Berahab | September 07, 2018

This year marks 10 years since the first India-Africa Forum Summit took place, and represents an important moment to take an in-depth look at the India-Africa relationship.

Going forward from the Delhi Declaration and the India-Africa Framework for Strategic Cooperation, Observer Research Foundation, New Delhi, and OCP Policy Center, Rabat, are bringing out a joint publication on bolstering India-Africa engagement to secure a common future in the 21st century. This publication takes into account the longstanding and multifaceted nature of India-Africa ties, and the endeavour to pursue a  development partnership that seeks to urgently respond to critical challenges that require organic solutions. Given both the boundless opportunities and the scale of challenges these regions face, it is inevitable that solutions and pathways will also be incubated here. As such, this publication is a knowledge bridge between Indian and African institutions, particularly as we have attempted to bring together views and policy suggestion from both Indian and African contributors.

About the Global Policy Journal 
Global Policy is an innovative and interdisciplinary journal bringing together world class academics and leading practitioners to analyse both public and private solutions to global problems and issues. It focuses on understanding globally relevant risks and collective action problems; policy challenges that have global impact; and competing and converging discourses about global risks and policy responses. It also includes case studies of policy with clear lessons for other countries and regions; how policy responses, politics and institutions interrelate at the global level; and the conceptual, theoretical and methodological innovations needed to explain and develop policy in these areas.
Global Policy's Editorial Board comprises a distinguished panel of academics who are supported by an International Advisory Board and a Practitioners' Advisory Board of experts from around the world to ensure the focus remains on pressing and relevant global issues. Global Policy is based at Durham University.
