ECDPM wants to contribute to effective European and African policies for a sustainable and inclusive economic recovery and transformation.

The African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) has created a single market of goods and services on a continent of 1.3 billion people. Despite the potential it represents, economic growth, poverty reduction and global trade have suffered major setbacks due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Our research on economy and trade includes work on the European financial architecture for development, the political economy dynamics of Africa’s regional integration, private sector engagement, circular economy and the interaction between these topics and gender.
