A discussion on the new EU development policy shifts in practice: Implications for partner countries

On 21st March 2024 from 10:00-12:00, ECDPM together with the Permanent Representation of Belgium to the EU, are hosting a meeting 'A discussion on the new EU development policy shifts in practice: Implications for partner countries' as a follow up to ECDPM's paper, The new EU development policy shifts in practice: Views from Kenya and Cameroon.

This is an in-person, invite only event which will also be available to watch via livestream.  The livestream will be in both English and French. 

Bringing together representatives from the EU and Africa, this event would broaden the geographical scope of ECDPM’s research, looking at these implications from different contexts and bringing up different reactions to the EU policy for international partnerships.
