Alexander Rondos, EU Special Representative to the Horn of Africa

 

Bordering Egypt, the Red Sea, the Sahel and Central Africa, the Horn of Africa is a historical crossroads of culture, politics, trade and conflict. Factors affecting the region such as global economic rivalries, political instability, the surge in both immigration and emigration, and the proliferation of terrorism have attracted the attention of the international community in recent years. As such, this critical part of Africa has been host to increased diplomatic, economic, and security activism – particularly on the part of the EU. In his address to the IIEA, the EU Special Representative to the Horn of Africa, Alexander Rondos, will outline how the Horn of Africa is of strategic interest to the EU, and will discuss how the EU can respond to the opportunities and challenges posed by this region.
