“The Revision of the Cotonou Partnership Agreement” a new CONCORD publication

In this Briefing Paper published in February 2010, CONCORD expresses serious concerns on the content of the revision of the Cotonou Partnership Agreement, but also on the lack of transparency of the process.

It should also be noted that this paper largely refers to the Joint Africa-EU Strategy, in particular in its section on the institutional and policy aspects of the revision. Read the full article.
