Responses by civil society actors to the EU Strategy for Africa
The EU Strategy for Africa was adopted by the Heads of State and Government of the EU in December 2005. The strategy is entitled “The EU and Africa: Towards a Strategic Partnership” and aims to provide a comprehensive framework for the EU’s relations with Africa. You can read more about the strategy on Europe Cares website.
To discuss the content of the strategy a civil society conference was organised in Vienna 22/23 of June 2006 called SOUND of AFRICA. It brought together more than 290 participants from 40 states across Europe and Africa. In addition, the conference was prepared through regional NGO-meetings in Africa and Europe.
The purpose of this post is to bring to your attention the results of the Vienna conference, as well as to share other responses made to the strategy, before and after its adoption. Many of the points made can still be of relevance to the joint strategy that is now being developed. If you know of other papers written on the EU Strategy for Africa that you think should be included in this list, please send an e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org and we will make sure that they are added.
