Problematyka bezpieczeństwa w relacjach UE-Afryka Subsaharyjska – wymiar polityczny i energetyczny

Security issues in EU– Sub-Saharan Africa relations – political and energy-related aspects


The end of the Cold War was not tantamount with elimination of all sources of tensions or conflicts worldwide. On the contrary, at that time international reality saw a number of new problems or aggravation of some of those already present. Transformation of international power arrangement that has taken place since that time confronted the European Union and countries of Sub-Saharan Africa with the need to redefine their mutual relations in the context of international security in both political and economic areas. The aim of this article is to present those relations. It analyses such issues as wars and conflicts in Africa; international terrorism and energy-related aspect of security. The Author discusses premises, conditions and measures taken by the EU in that respect. The article also attempts to answer the question, whether the EU manages to effectively influence the process of shaping international security in Sub-Saharan Africa.
