India and Africa’s Partnership: A Vision for a New Future
Abstract: This book demonstrates the changing dynamics of India’s engagement with Africa, focusing on trade, investment, official development assistance, capacity building activities, and the diaspora. It also examines its impact at the economic, political and societal levels with respect to governance, democratic structures, education, and health. India has a competitive edge of historical goodwill and it is one of the most important countries engaging Africa in the 21st Century. For Africa, India has emerged from an aid recipient country to a major aid provider but on the basis of the partnership model. The book provides a contemporary analysis and assessment of Indo-Africa relations, bringing together contributions from the Global South and from the North that explore whether the relationship is truly ‘mutually beneficial’.
