'...an interesting and welcome contribution to the task of promoting a better and deeper understanding of EU policy...' - Carol Cosgrove-Sacks, Development in Practice
'...a very instructive, well-researched, and stimulating book on a topic that has not received sufficient attention from the academic community. - Gorm Rye Olsen, International Politics
'The European Union and the Third World works best as an analysis of why EU policy desperately needed to be reformed. The author reflects on how the Cotonou agreement of 2000 emerged from three major precipitants: the geographical incoherence of the previous treaties, the changes demanded by the new post-Cold War political and economic environment, and forces internally at work within the EU itself...The European Union and the Third World should be commended for providing rich material which outlines the need for the reform, and it is also the best source I have come across for explaining the background to, and content of, the 2000 Cotonou agreement.' - Alex Thomson, European Foreign Affairs Review
'a well-researched highly informative and detailed study that manages throughout to link the internal dynamics and developments of EU policy making with actual policy operation and implementing.' - Tobias Schumacher, International Politics and Society
This text provides a broad ranging analysis of the EU's relations with the developing world today set in the context of the policy, debates and changes of the 1990s and the EU's historical ties to the Third World. Covering the whole range of the EU's relations with developing states including the Cotonou Agreement and the "Everything but Arms" Regulation, the book assesses the likely evolution of trading regimes and the scope and limits of opportunities for fostering economic progress and good governance.
