Moe Fejerskov, A., and Keijzer, N.. 2013. Practice makes perfect? The European Union's engagement in negotiations on a post-2015 framework for development. (DIIS Report 2013:04). Copenhagen: Danish Institute for International Studies.
This paper explores the role of the European Union in the post-2015 negotiations for a new framework for development. To establish a basis for discussing the post-2015framework, it starts by recalling and analysing the shape, content and process of developing the existing Millennium Development Goals. It subsequently explores the emerging positions of the OECD and EU members, the global South and the G77, and global civil society.
To maximise its inﬂuence in the post-2015 process, the EU will have to learn from past experiences. Thus, the paper systematically analyses ﬁve key multilateral events (the High-Level Forums on Aid Eﬀectiveness in Accra (2008) and Busan (2011), the 2008 Doha conference on Financing for Development, the 17th COP in Durban in 2011, and the 2012 Rio+20 Conference on Sustainable Development).
