 Atlantic Perspectives,  Interview Report, nº. 5

This paper evaluates Angolan perceptions on matters concerning the Atlantic Basin. Through multiple interviews with representatives from a wide spectrum of Angola’s society, the main trends, risks and opportunities in this area are explored while the role of norms and values, cooperation and regionalism as potential drivers of further relations are weighted in and evaluated. Ultimately, the paper addresses the main question of knowing whether or not Angola perceives new dynamics in the Atlantic as existent and/or desirable and reflects on what role the country might play in the long run in such kind of regional scenario.
