About this book

In the post-Lome era of cooperation, provides a detailed analysis
of the relationship between the European Union and the African-Caribbean-Pacific Bloc, exposing limitations to the EU's approach. This title is accessible to all students of Political Economy, Globalization, Development Studies and Environmental Politics, as well as to policy makers. The European Union's relationship with the African-Caribbean-Pacific Bloc is a neglected area of study, Flint provides a comprehensive overview of this long-standing affiliation. The author stresses the importance of linking environmentally sound development with poverty alleviation strategies, with implications for other international donor organisations and the 'donor consensus' in general.

In 2000 the European Union and its 78 African-Caribbean-Pacific partners signed the Cotonou Agreement, heralding a new era in developmental politics. This comprehensive book draws attention to the limitations in the EU's approach to implementing pro-poor, environmentally sustainable development amongst its African-Caribbean-Pacific partners.
