The EU Africa Working Group covers all IDC activities related to Africa and the EU African partnership.

Main objectives are:

* to promote communication, exchange and cooperation between Europe and Africa on issues relevant for both continents or of global dimension;

* to launch activities and projects with a view to ease and facilitate this cooperation and networking;

* to assemble and provide relevant information, through reports and publications; and

* to cooperate and interact with other researchers, scientists and stakeholders in Europe, Africa and beyond, working in this field.

Expertise lies in the following areas:

  • Sustainable Development, with special focus on the engagement and involvement of Civil Society Organisations (CSOs)
