ECDPM caught up with Ms. Marie Chantal Uwitonze, President of the African Diaspora Network in Europe (ADNE) to discuss the future of ACP-EU relations beyond 2020 from the point of view of the African diaspora in Europe. 

We asked Ms. Marie Chantal Uwitonze the following questions:

  1. Why are the current discussions on the future of the ACP-EU partnership post-2020 important to an organisation like yours?
  2. What is, in general, the view of your stakeholders on future cooperations between Africa and Europe?
  3. Does the ACP Group provide more added value compared to other regional frameworks that exist between Europe and Africa – including the African Union?
  4. Can the Cotonou Partnership Agreement be rewired to deal effectively with the 2030 Agenda?
