Development Cooperation of the European Union at the Cross-roads (Working Group “Aid Policy and Performance”)

The European Union has become one of the major international donors and thus should be capable of playing an important role in international development cooperation. At the same time the EU is reviewing some of its major development and international cooperation programmes, e.g. with the end of the Cotonou Convention in 2020. It might thus be time to look back at the performance of the EU as a development actor at different levels. We are interested to receive papers on the performance of the EU at country and project level, but also of EU institutions involved in development cooperation, from the Commission’s DGs, the External Action Service and the Commissioners to its evaluation units and the delegations in developing countries.
