The European Commission’s recent proposal for the EU budget after 2020 mentions innovative forms of engagement with middle-income and more advanced developing countries. But it gives very few details when it comes to explaining what this means in practice.

Virginia Mucchi will moderate the debate.
Please note: a buffet will be served between 12:00 and 12:30, discussions will start at 12:30 and will end at 14:00.
We are looking forward to interesting and informative discussions during what we hope will be a very interactive seminar.
In addition to structural support by ECDPM’s institutional partners (the Netherlands, Belgium, Estonia, Finland, Ireland, Luxembourg, Sweden, Switzerland, Denmark and Austria), this event also benefits from funding by the United Kingdom’s Department for International Development (DFID).
