With the Biden administration showing willingness to work with international organizations, what do you see as the major lines of cooperation on the continent in the coming year? Will the WHO, AU, UNSC have more authority? How do the U.S. and France work together to provide security in Africa? Do they share the same strategic priorities? How will the strategic competition with China affect the U.S. engagement on the African continent? How does Russia’s increasing footprint in Africa influence transatlantic strategies?
