Doing more with less. How to adapt EU development and external action to new challenges in the Africa-Europe Partnership?
The Maltese Presidency of the Council of the EU and the European Centre for Development Policy Management (ECDPM) have the pleasure to invite you to a co-organised seminar to launch ECDPM’s Challenges paper on Africa-Europe relations in 2017.
This seminar will bring together officials from the European Commission, European Parliament, European External Action Services, members of the CODEV, ACP and COAFR Council Working Parties and Civil Society representatives to discuss key challenges in the run-up to the upcoming Africa-EU Summit at the end of 2017. As a scene setter and to kick-off the discussion, ECDPM’s Challenges Paper for Africa-EU relations in 2017- matching means to priorities will be presented.
ECDPM’s annual Challenges Paper seeks to identify important debates that can be expected in the coming year and beyond and to sketch the backdrop against which these will unfold. The aim is not to predict outcomes, but to situate debates that concern Africa-EU relations so as to facilitate as wide a stakeholder engagement as possible.
The seminar will take place at the Permanent Representation of Malta, Rue Archimède 25, Brussels.
The draft programme and concept note are available here.
This event is by invitation only; there are no more spaces available.
