Information

This chapter analyses and discusses recent shifts in EU development cooperation towards Africa, with particular attention to the principle of complementarity that featured in formative EU development policy and was introduced in the EU Treaties as a key principle driving EU integration in this area. It considers specific institutional/legal, political as well as contextual changes as explaining the observed shift in EU development policy from one of complementing to ‘copying’ member state policy. The chapter's main ambition of this chapter is to feed into ongoing reflections on the future of the EU’s development policy, as well as inform future academic research inquiry.
