Report; report; text, Created By Nordic Africa Institute Created By Beyene, Atakilte; Adetula, Victor and Published By Nordiska Afrikainstitutet, Research Unit; Nordiska Afrikainstitutet, Research Unit; Uppsala published in 2017
Enforce the ‘African solutions to African problems’ principle in the UN and promote cooperation with the African Union and its regional communities. That is what Ethiopia should work for during its two-year term in the Security Council. To perform on this global stage, the Ethiopian government has to address its domestic democracy and governance issues.

Report; report; text, Created By Nordic Africa Institute Created By Adetula, Victor and Published By Nordiska Afrikainstitutet, Research Unit; Uppsala published in 2016
In comparison with other African countries, faith in democracy is strong in Ghana. But the legal tussles that followed the last general election in 2012, and the disqualification of some candidates on trifling grounds in the lead-up to this year’s presidential elections, has spurred public mistrust.

Sweden's bid for a UN Security Council seat and what Africa stands to gain
Report; report; text, Created By Nordic Africa Institute Created By Adetula, Victor and Published By Nordiska Afrikainstitutet, Research Unit; Uppsala published in 2016
The Swedish government should involve the African diaspora in Sweden to secure the support of African countries in the UN. It also needs to clarify in what ways Sweden's feminist foreign policy is compatible with African values of respect and dignity for womanhood. These are a couple of recommendations provided in this policy note on how Sweden should act to improve relations with African countries and succeed in its ambitions to achieve the sustainable development goals of Agenda 2030.

Report; report; text, Created By Nordic Africa Institute Created By Adetula, Victor and Published By Nordiska Afrikainstitutet, Research Unit; Uppsala published in 2018
There is profound concern in large circles in Africa that the Cotonou Agreement obstructs African governments from supporting domestic production, and that the EU is splitting Africa in two by striking separate deals with different African regions. These perceptions are important considerations for those involved in the upcoming negotiations to replace the existing agreement.
