The Portuguese-speaking African countries and regime change in Libya

Paulo Gorjão

As far as the Portuguese-speaking African countries are concerned, Angola's foreign policy will benefit from the Libyan regime change, Cape Verde and Mozambique will be able to live with it, while Guinea-Bissau and São Tomé and Príncipe will inevitably end up paying the bill.

South Africa goes BRICS: the importance of 'ubuntu' in foreign policy

Vasco Martins

By entering the BRICS, South Africa will gain much more visibility, more political influence in decision-making, overall greater 'power'. Accordingly, and as a country that is miles away in terms of economic and political development in comparison to the rest of Africa, will South Africa become overwhelmed by this new BRICS status and forget the very roots of its foreign policy? If not, will South Africa work to enrich its own accounts or will it do so while bringing other African countries into the fold?

Côte d'Ivoire: a South Sudan solution?

By Paulo Gorjão

 

South African President Jacob Zuma agreed that a political solution similar to that of South Sudan was needed to bring about political stability in Côte d'Ivoire (Africa Confidential, 21 January 2011).

 

This is a new development, as far as I am aware, at least at this stage. Zuma is the first one, at this point, to raise this issue. He is isolated, or his views are shared by other important players? Who is in favor of breaking up Côte d'Ivoire? South Africa, it seems. But what about Angola and Nigeria? And Alassane Outtara, as well as Laurent Gbagbo, what do they think about it?

 

More importantly, is it a real solution to Côte d'Ivoire's problems? Or are we creating new ones?

Côte d'Ivoire: A test tube for Angola's regional policy?

Paulo Gorjão

Angola may come to play a relevant backstage role here, where Mbeki failed under the limelight. The million-dollar question is how to devise a successful exit strategy. By chance, the current crisis in Côte d'Ivoire might become a test of Angola's capacity to safeguard and promote its regional interests.
