PISM Report: Przyszłość partnerstwa UE–AKP po 2020 roku. Perspektywa Polski
05 JAN 2016 Report

The Partnership Agreement between the EU and the African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States (ACP) known as the Cotonou Agreement will expire in early 2020. At the onset of negotiations within the EU on future relations with 78 ACP countries we present a report summarising the targets and achievements of the current agreement along with an initial assessment of its impact and effectiveness. The report also outlines possible scenarios for future cooperation, the current debate within the EU on the post-Cotonou agreement as well as the position of major European players with a view to stimulating a debate in Poland on the most effective and beneficial relations between the EU and ACP in the future.
