European Convention

The European Convention takes place at a crucial time for Europe's role in international cooperation and development. The Convention deals with questions that will touch upon the very heart of Europe's involvement as a global actor. One of the objectives of the Convention is to increase the capacity of the European Union in its external relations.

In concrete terms one of the central questions that will be addressed is how the EU's foreign policy can be strengthened and how development will relate to this in terms of the institutional set up of the Union, the political provisions, policy objectives, and decision-making procedures.

This redefinition of Europe's external role, how would it impact on its development policy? How can the independence of its development policy be maintained within the overarching objective to reach a European external policy?
