AFRIQUE ET ETATS-UNIS : Bi-régionalisme, représentativité et pouvoir d’influence

1. Introduction : Du “new look” au “new deal” de l’interdépendance

Avant et après le discours d’Accra de Barack Obama 1, l’Afrique demeure une variable d’ajustement dans la politique étrangère américaine. Les dynamiques propres à l’Afrique ne sont pas fondamentalement soutenues, ou alors à la marge. Les soutiens sélectifs résultent de choix politiques (Rwanda optant pour le monde anglophone par exemple) ou alors de facilitation en termes d’offres de matières premières ou d’approvisionnement sécurisés des Etats-Unis à partir d’Afrique (exemples du Nigeria, Gabon et Guinée équatoriale pour le Plus >
