Insider’s Guide to the New EU-ACP post-Cotonou Agreement

The new partnership agreement between the European Union and the members of the Organisation of African, Caribbean and Pacific States marks the formal conclusion of their negotiations of the Post-Cotonou Agreement, and sets the framework for political, economic and sectoral cooperation for the next twenty years.

ACT Alliance EU prepared together with a few other members of CONCORD an Insider’s Guide highlighting the crucial sections in the negotiated text of the Post-Cotonou Agreement. This guide, addressed to civil society in the EU and ACP countries, aims to show why CSOs must engage with the Agreement and what they can do in terms of advocacy to monitor and influence its implementation. Finally, it urges the EU and ACP countries to put their work against inequality front and centre, adopting a structural, intersectional, rights-based approach.
