4x4 Directors Forum: African-European Think Tank Dialogue

Context

The 4x4 Directors Forum is an annual meeting gathering the directors of four European and four African Think Tanks to discuss current challenges that both continents are facing. The purpose is to identify common positions and asymmetries, and address possible areas of cooperation in order to build solid bridges between the African and European continent. 

Members

On the European side Bruegel, the French Institute of International Relations (Ifri), the Institute for International Political Studies (Ispi) and Royal United Services Institute (RUSI) will represent the Think Tanks landscape. The African continent will be represented by the African Economic Development Policy Initiative (AEDPI), the Brenthurst Foundation, the Institute for Peace and Security Studies (IPSS) and Policy Center for the New South. Each Think Tank will be represented by its Director and an in-house or external expert who is a specialist in one of the issues addressed during the forum.

Format

The Roundtable discussion will last two half days, each day having two sessions. Every session will be briefly introduced (5-10 min.) by a director from a European and an African Think Tank. A discussion with the audience (Chatham House Rule) will follow the presentations.

At the end of the first day, an informal dinner will be organized to discuss the African and European Think Tank landscape.
