Reviews

'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.'
