This document presents a summary of discussions held during a May 2012 roundtable of prominent representatives of civil society in the African diaspora community along with regional experts at the Royal Commonwealth Club in London, United Kingdom. The theme of the workshop was “Reengaging Africa: Identifying Opportunities and Pitfalls,” and the discussion was conducted in two sessions. Session one focused broadly on reengagement between the West and Africa. The second session focused more specifically on the southern Africa region, particularly South Africa and Zimbabwe.
