A dialogue conference within the framework of the Austrian Presidency of the European Union.

The conference aims to look at relations between the European Union and Africa under the perspective of inequalities both between and within these two regions and to explore answers to questions: What are the current trends in and drivers for income and wealth inequalities within the African-European context? Is transnational solidarity an effective mean to reduce inequalities and promote social justice? With regards to the ongoing negotiations about the Post-Cotonou Agreement, what could be an adequate institutional response to tackle existing and growing inequalities?

“Inequality – A Challenge for African-European Cooperation” continues the longstanding Austrian tradition of North-South dialogue and builds on the Europe-Southern Africa Conference convened by the same organisers under the first Austrian EU Presidency in 1998. The main objective of the conference is to highlight the issue of inequality within the African-European relations.

ECDPM’s Geert Laporte will speak at this event.
