Abstract

The article seeks to understand the geopolitics of Cape Verde in the context of West Africa, and its projection  as a small island State. The central argument is that Cape Verde needs to make  pragmatic  use of the Western African coast region for its regional projection. The article focus on a qualitative methodological analysis, based on an interpretative approach and a bibliographical revision in order to address the international phenomena that configure the Cape Verdean geopolitics in West Africa.
