On 15 July the Directors of the European Think Tanks Group (ETTG) met with EU Commissioner Neven Mimica. They discussed the review of the European Development Consensus and related issues.

The ETTG is made up of four like-minded leading European international cooperation think tanks: German Development Institute (DIE)European Centre for Development Policy Management (ECDPM), the Institute for Sustainable Development and International Relations (IDDRI), and the Overseas Development Institute (ODI).

The work of the group is shaped by our understanding of:

  • the global context,
  • priorities in European development cooperation, and
  • lessons learned from working together as think tanks.
