Hudson Nonresident Fellow James Barnett joins the show from Nigeria to paint a picture of Africa’s economic and political landscape. France, the United States, Russia, China, and Saudi Arabia are all involved with the continent through either foreign direct investment, humanitarian aid, military support, and/or peacekeeping operations. Barnett gives his outlook on how the West is perceived regionally, and whether Chinese and Russian initiatives in Africa will have a long-lasting impact.
