On November 5, 2020, Moscow hosted the second Russian-African Public Forum organized by the “Africa Business Initiative” Union and the World Alumni Association.

The forum was dedicated to the dialogue of civil societies of Russia and Africa as the main driver of the future world order and sustainable development. RIAC prepared and held a special session on improving cooperation between Russian and African think tanks working in the field of foreign policy, the world economy and international security.

Despite the number of activities presented at the Forum by Russian think tanks, African analytical centers expressed a wish to strengthen communication and information exchange. Both sides noted the need to identify and systematize issues for further development of cooperation. Proposals were made to create a consortium of Russian-African analytical centers with headquarters in Moscow and Cairo to conduct research and provide information to government and business structures.

The session was attended by the heads of academic, educational, and non-governmental research centers of Russia and Africa. The discussion was moderated by Andrey Kortunov, RIAC Director General.
