An essential reader and reference tool for trade experts and interested parties, bringing together key analysis on all aspects of trade negotiations between the African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) states and the European Union.

The editors, both highly experienced in trade negotiations, have selected the most useful articles on all key aspects of trade negotiations, including market access, services, fisheries, regional integration, compatibility with the multilateral framework, the development dimension and capacity building in trade negotiations.

The introduction highlights the major concerns of the book, focusing on ensuring that the priorities of developing countries are addressed.

This publication is comprised of two volumes.



For Richer or Poorer: Transforming Economic Partnership Agreements between Europe and Africa

Some NGOs have raised concerns about the Economic Partnership Agreements that the EC is negotiating with the poorest countries…Europe should not be, and is not, seeking to “take” anything from these countries. Our aim is a new framework where neighbours work together to benefit from freer trade, while we offer assistance to integrate them into the world trading system. That is our global 21st-century challenge.
