Africa Report 2021. Common Challenges for Africa and Europe under the pandemic
On February 14th, 2020 the first case of COVID-19 on the African continent was confirmed. Last year’s 2020 Africa Report maintained that although a greater perspective was necessary to understand the pandemic’s effect on Africa’s political, economic and social processes, it wouldn’t represent a clear break between a pre-pandemic and a post-pandemic period. A year later, with additional perspective to reflect on the impact of this global phenomenon on the continent and on international relations, the 2021 Africa Report touches upon the pandemic’s consequences in Africa, along with other issues that continue to be equally relevant in the political, economic and social agenda of the continent, including its relations with the European Union and with Spain in particular, in the context of a much-needed renewal of relations between Europe, Spain and Africa.
