This book is available as open access through the Bloomsbury Open Access programme and is available on In order to think theoretically about our global age it is important to understand how the global has been conceived historically. 'Eurafrica' was an intellectual endeavor and political project that from the 1920s saw Europe's future survival - its continued role in history - as completely bound up with Europe's successful merger with Africa. In its time the concept of Eurafrica was tremendously influential in the process of European integration. Today the project is largely forgotten, yet the idea continues to influence EU policy towards its African 'partner'. The book will recover a critical conception of the nexus between Europe and Africa - a relationship of significance across the humanities and social sciences. In assessing this historical concept the authors shed light on the process of European integration, African decolonization and the current conflictual relationship between Europe and Africa.

Eurafrica is a very timely book on an important topic. While stressing continuity across the twentieth century and cataloguing Eurafrican projects in an accessible and useful manner, it shows that colonies played a much more important role in the thinking about European cooperation than is generally acknowledged. * Anne-Isabelle Richard, Journal of Global History * A powerful essay ... Hansen and Jonsson are to be commending for having written a book on European integration that will be of interest to scholars both of postcolonial studies as well as of modern European history in general. * H-Soz-Kult online * It is not often that one reads a work of academic history that has both interpretative value and policy relevance, as Peo Hansen and Stefan Jonssons Eurafrica does. [This] splendid book rightly dwells upon the ambiguous legacy of the concept of Eurafrica for the process of European integration. * Survival: Global Politics and Strategy * Hansen and Jonssons exceptional study Eurafrica ... is invaluable in recovering the imperial history of Europe qua Europe. * Sociology * [A] wide-ranging and carefully researched book ... The authors are to be commended for their extensive research. * The European Legacy * A roseate glimmer of postwar peace attaches to 'Europe' - the fake continent and the organization of states that is said metonymically to stand for it. Hansen and Jonsson uncover something altogether different in the formation of the European project, something either unknown or papered over in embarrassed silence: Eurafrica. The colonial ideology, morphing into the neo-colonial here, is nothing less than astonishing. * Anders Stephanson, Andrew and Virginia Rudd Family Foundation Professor of History, Columbia University, USA * [...] the work Eurafrica offers a very valuable contribution to the thorough knowledge and full understanding of the bond existing between decolonization and europeanisation processes. Based on a wide range of sources, it provides a general overview of the origins, motivations, forms and means of EC cooperation policies and illuminates the denseness of themes, controversies and approaches covered in research. In this way it advances knowledge about the debate on the centrality of colonial legacy in early blueprints for European Integration and provides a good fact finding of the state of the research in the field. * Jean-Marie Palayret, former Director of the Historical Archives of the European Union, European University Institute, Florence *
