Between 1955 and 1973, Israeli interventions in Africa were imprinted with Israel’s history of nation-building and modernist development, the centrality of socialism in the economic growth of the country and a culture shaped by a spirit of founding and ‘on the spot’ solutions. Close relations between Israel and independent African states were based on common political, economic and social agendas, but African postcolonial leaders faced a multitude of challenges that ultimately took priority over ties with Israel. Focusing on three case studies, Nigeria, Zambia and Ethiopia, we see the confluence of interests giving shape to Israel’s foreign policy and diplomatic strategies in Africa.
