On 29 and 30 November 2017, the 5th Summit between the African Union and European Union will take place in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire. At the meeting, heads of state and governments will discuss the future of relations between the two continents and decide on concrete cooperation projects for the next three years.
Although the summit will not primarily deal with trade policy, the European Economic Partnership Agreements (EPAs), which are the subject of controversial discussions in Germany, will probably also play a role in the discussions. To what extent is the discussion about EPAs still relevant? Which challenges will the African continent face regarding the direction of its economic and trade policy?
