This inspiring collection analyzes the contribution of EU development policy to poverty reduction. It focuses on various aspects of the policy - trade, agriculture and food security, and modes of policy making and implementation - and covers three geographical areas in relation to Europe - Latin America, Asia and Africa/Middle East. The volume concludes with practical recommendations for improving EU development policy with a view to enhancing its effectiveness.


'In recent years both development theory and development policy have undergone major changes. This volume examines how these changes affect the development assistance provided by the EU - one of the main global actors in the field. Throughout a series of well documented case studies, the reader is presented with a critical assessment of EC/EU policy making and with a set of practical recommendations to enhance the effectiveness of EU development policy. As such it is a recommendable reading for policy makers and for scholars interested in how the EU as a regional formation aims to contribute to realising the Millennium Development Goals.' Luk Van Langenhove, United Nations University, Belgium

Reflective of its cosmopolitan and creative orientation, this series is developed by an international editorial team of established and emerging scholars in both the South and North. It reinforces ongoing networks of analysts in both academia and think-tanks as well as international agencies concerned with micro-, meso- and macro-level regionalisms.
