On Africa

Feb 13, 2019

This episode of the On Africa podcast examines the emergence of new economic and military investments by Gulf states in the Horn of Africa, as well as the geopolitical and strategic competition it entails. 

To help us unpack these rivalries within and between Gulf states and nations in the Horn of Africa, I spoke with Zach Vertin of the Brookings Institution's Doha Center - who published the article "Red Sea Rivalries" in the January 2019 edition of Foreign Affairs magazine.

Zach is also the author of the recently released "A Rope from the Sky: The Making and Unmaking of the World's Newest State" which focuses on political developments in South Sudan.

Please tune in, rate, review and enjoy!
