Building a New Partnership between Africa and the EU. Business as usual or a transforming agenda?

C3 - Centre for International Development, Vienna, October 11, 2018

The negotiations on a new agreement between the EU and the ACP-Countries (African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States) will start during the Austrian Presidency of the Council of the European Union in the second half of 2018. Considering the economic and geopolitical strategies of China in Africa on the one hand and the international consensus of implementing the Sustainable Development agenda on the other hand demands new political commitments and new strategies in the European relationship with Africa. This conference highlighted the importance of the African European relationship and offered space for discussions, information and facts about economic and political strategies from different perspectives.

The Conference was organised by ÖFSE and EADI (European Association of Development Research and Training Institutes).

Interview with keynote speaker Yenkong Ngangjoh Hodu (currently Prof. of International Economic Law at the University of Manchester).

Interview with Henning Melber (currently President of EADI and Associate Professor at the University of Pretoria and the Center for Africa Studies of the Free State University in Bloemfontein).
