The COVID-19 pandemic and the global reverberations of the war in Ukraine have unleashed a number of socioeconomic, security, political and geopolitical shocks and shifts in North Africa. These changes are driving uncertainties but could also create opportunities across the region.
To what extent is the uncertain economic outlook reshaping regional geopolitics? How are governments responding to current challenges and what potential impacts might arise amid crises? What role can civil society play within countries in domestic turmoil, and what are the obstacles to innovation in North Africa? And how have the region’s international relations evolved in recent years and months?
In a joint effort by the Elcano Royal Institute, the Italian Institute for International Political Studies (ISPI) and the Middle East Institute (MEI), this Dossier seeks to unlock the nuances and details of North Africa’s unfolding dynamics, while contextualising them in the broader geopolitical scenario.
