WECO The EU was often acting as a model of regional integration and provided political, strategic and financial support to many regional initiatives in Africa. However, the EU approach has not always been successful, raising frustrations, and at times resentments. At the same time, the international landscape has changed, with an increasing role of emerging players. A new GMF policy paper, authored by ECDPM experts, draws some tentative insights toward a more intensive effort at the G20 in support of African endeavors for regional integration. The EU could provide such impetus to do so, and could gain valuable insights itself to adjust its dedicated approach to support regional integration in Africa, say the authors.
