Abstract:The authors present some of their remarks on US policy toward Africa which they made at a plenary session on 19 October 2007 in New York City at the 50th meeting of the African Studies Association. Following the introductory section by the moderator, James H. Mittelman, Akwe Amosu shows that, in the competition for access to petroleum, and in the context of the 'war on terror', US policy puts its goals of, amongst others, good governance and fair elections on the back seat. Mvuselelo Ngcoya looks at the dangers of the intensified militarization of US-Africa relations. Abdi Ismail Samatar uses the cases of Ethiopia and Somalia to illustrate America's strategic policy towards Africa. [ASC Leiden abstract]
