2018: A chance to get it right

Institutional and Political Issues
Date: Monday, 05 February 2018 16:30 - 19:30

Venue: Permanent Representation of Luxembourg  |  City: Brussel, Belgium

The Permanent Representation of Luxembourg to the European Union and the European Centre for Development Policy Management (ECDPM) have the pleasure to invite you to the seminar ‘2018: A chance to get it right’ to launch ECDPM’s Challenges Paper on Africa-Europe relations in 2018.

This seminar will bring together policymakers and experts to debate key issues and policy processes that will shape Africa-Europe relations this year. As a scene setter and to kick-off the discussion, ECDPM’s James Mackie will present the Challenges Paper for Africa-Europe relations in 2018. A panel discussion will follow with: Ambassador Baso Sangqu (Ambassador of South Africa to the Kingdom of Belgium, the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg and the Mission to the European Union), Barbara Pesce-Monteiro (Director of UNDP’s Representation Office in Brussels), Felix Fernandez-Shaw (Cabinet HRVP Mogherini) and Shada Islam (Director of Policy at Friends of Europe).

After the seminar, we invite you to join us for a drinks reception.


The year 2018 presents a unique opportunity for Europe and Africa to arrive at a more coherent partnership between the ACP-EU Cotonou Agreement and the AU-EU Joint Africa-EU Strategy. Policymakers on both continents will also make a number of key decisions on Brexit, migration, security, the next EU budget and the institutional and financial reforms of the African Union. A window of opportunity opens for Africa and Europe to build a new type of interest-driven partnership that is capable of tackling the major new challenges in Africa, Europe and the global world. Will the different parties seize this momentum?
