A mo­ment to ask some chal­leng­ing ques­tions

Stabroek News Sunday - - REGIONAL NEWS -

year from now, ne­go­ti­a­tions will be­gin for a suc­ces­sor agree­ment to the Cotonou Con­ven­tion. which they ar­gue is “based on an out­dated ge­o­graphic am­bit and in­sti­tu­tional struc­tures”.

De­scrib­ing the re­sult­ing out­come as an “am­bigu­ous and half-baked re­form pro­posal” ECDPM sug­gests that the ap­proach, if not al­tered, will give prece­dence to the ge­o­graphic logic of the ACP, some­thing which they ob­serve “only ex­ists in re­la­tion to the EU and not be­yond”.
