The African Union Commission, the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) and ECDPM organise a side event in the margins of the 5th AU-EU Summit.

The aim of this event is:

  • to make a state of affairs of the Joint Africa-EU Strategy (JAES)
  • to identify challenges and future perspectives for the Africa-Europe partnership also in the light of the upcoming negotiations for a Post Cotonou ACP-EU Agreement in 2020;
  • to facilitate a reciprocal political dialogue and to foster a deeper understanding of European and African perspectives on the key issues of strategic interest in the Partnership;
  • to establish links between the Europe-Africa partnership with the global agendas and cooperation frameworks, including the Sustainable Development Goals.

The seminar will bring together representatives from the African Union Commission, the European Union, governments, international and regional organisations, the diplomatic community as well as international, regional and national scholars and think-tanks, business leaders, private sector representatives, civil society, media and journalists.

ECDPM’s Geert Laporte will moderate one of the sessions.
