ECDPM was invited to present the paper “Strategically financing an effective role for the EU in the world: First reflections on the next EU Budget” at the Swedish Permanent Representation in Brussels. Member-States representatives from CODEV (Cooperation and Development) and ACP working groups of the Council were invited, as well as Commission and EEAS representatives.

ECDPM’s Andrew Sherriff and Mariella Di Ciommo presented the paper on the MFF (Multiannual Financial Framework ) and introduced three questions for the debate:

  1. Challenges and risks for the EU budget;
  2. EU values vs EU interests;
  3. Fundamental changes in the next MFF.

Geert Laporte and Jean Bossuyt moderated the debate.
