ABSTRACT

This paper assesses the U.S. foreign policy towards Africa. It gives special attention to the factors that led to the slow progress of U.S.-Africa relations. For this purpose, we discuss the trends of relations since the end of WWII. Some experts on U.S.-Africa relations claimed that the cooperation between the U.S. and Africa is becoming comprehensive and progressing steadily. But, this paper strongly argues that U.S.-Africa relation is showing slow progress due to the U.S. absence of the tradition of long term strategic policy and overarching vision towards Africa. As a result of this, their relations have been confined to areas such as humanitarian aid, and short term collaborations on emerging issues including transnational crime, terrorism, and endemic diseases.
