Since the early 2000s Turkey's foreign engagement has undergone profound changes. This has accompanied its growing economic strength at the very time when much of the developed world is in the midst of an economic crisis. Under the current foreign minister, Professor Ahmed Davuto?lu, Turkey has adopted a more assertive role in its region, but has also reached out beyond its immediate neighbourhood to Africa, Latin America and Asia, using all the soft power tools available to it.

Kenya's relative stability and geostrategic location makes it a crucial actor to be involved in all aspects of counter-piracy in the region. How though, is this being articulated in Kenya's foreign policy?

On the eve of the first year anniversary of the Arab uprisings, it is useful to reflect on the state of EU-Africa relations, particularly in the aftermath of the prominent role played by key EU member states in Libya.
The South African Institute of International Affairs has released a host of new publications highlighting various emerging policy issues and areas of engagement between the African continent and China. The China-Africa Project, which began its activities in 2007, has produced a number of country-based analyses on several African countries, as well as sectoral analyses in telecommunications, finance, agriculture, resources, development assistance and special economic zones. The publications seek to contribute to a better understanding of China's overall strategy in Africa, assessing its impact on development and governance on the continent.
