    • Abstract:
      This analysis finds basis largely on the protocols of the three West German diplomatic conferences held in Africa in 1959, 1962, and 1968. It scrutinises the idea, advanced by part of Bonn's foreign policy élite at the end of the 1950s, that the Federal Republic of Germany had a "special mediatory role" to play between the West and Africa in the age of decolonisation. The Federal Republic played a significant indirect role, especially on the economic side, in keeping Africa tied to the West after the end of colonialism. However, because of its exposed political situation in Europe, it was never in a position to pursue a real mediating effort in Africa's decolonisation conflicts, therefore limiting its ambitions to that of "junior partner" of the former colonial Powers in the second half of the 1960s.
