|EU-ACP Negotiations on Post Lomé IV Convention - The Stand of Uganda Civil Society (DENIVA, 1999, 55 p.)|
The process has progressively gained momentum; Friedrich Ebert (FES) has been at the helm of a number of fora in line with the ACP-EU negotiations with particular focus on the developments in the East African countries since 1998. To-date several debates have been held in Kenya and Uganda to bolster coherence and advance the negotiations leading to the successor of the Lomé IV Convention.
Participants have consistently been representing a wide spectrum of stakeholders from the countries concerned with a blend of cross-sectoral representation within country teams. Prominence has been from government departments, the private sector bodies, collaborating Non-governmental organisations and some other regional/international bodies.
In this publication, Friedrich Ebert Stiftung in partnership with DENIVA present a summary of the discussions that have taken place since 1998. It brings out the salient issues that are critical in the furtherance of co-operation in the ACP-EU context. The spirit behind this publication is to present the stakeholders and other interested parties a consistent account of what has been happening and the general direction into the future of the co-operation focussing on the successor of the Lomé IV Convention.
