Project description

The growing resistance of other countries regarding the existing legal relationship between the EU and the ACP and the need to adjust the relations to recent developments raise several research questions. First, the WTO-compatibility of the new agreements (EPAs) and the integration in the multilateral trading system. Second, the flanking development policy. To conclude, a thorough examination regarding the respect of human rights, democracy and good governance.
