The countries of Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) are rediscovering their old relations with Africa. Over the last few years, a growing number of CEE embassies and trade offices have been established in sub-Saharan Africa, indicating that the connections between the two regions are gaining renewed attention. The research paper analyses the state of these relations. While renewed partnership will not become a top priority for countries on either side, rebuilding relations could provide economic, security and political benefits.
The study has been conducted and published by Chatham House as part of the project “Political and economic development in Central Europe and Africa: Shared learning from post-socialist countries”.
