More Information
The EU is the main trading partner of developing countries, and the main provider of development aid. The contributors to this book evaluate critical aspects of EU trade and aid policies in order to ascertain whether, and to what extent, they help promote growth and accelerate the development of the Third World.

The evaluation takes into account current changes in EU trade and aid policy and makes use of recent advances in empirical methods in order to provide accurate estimates of the policy impact on developing countries. The various studies may contribute to improve the design and implementation of EU policy and its effectiveness in strengthening growth of developing countries and promoting the well-being of their populations.

This independent evaluation of EU trade and development policy towards developing countries will strongly appeal to: undergraduate and graduate students in international economics, development economics and European economics; policy makers in the EU and developing countries, development community; non governmental organizations; and those interested in the impact of the EU trade and aid policy.
Critical Acclaim
‘This collection of economic articles on EU development policy provides a stimulating overview of the effects of policies which have undergone significant change in recent years. The book will be warmly welcomed in seminars on development policy, in particular where economic trends and consequences are discussed in relation to the EU’s policy.’
– Michael J. Steffens, European Foreign Affairs Review

‘It is a pleasure to read this well-written and topical book of essays on the EU’s trade and aid relationships with the developing world by a group of authors mostly associated with Lund University in Sweden. . . I can highly recommend this book to anyone interested in the analysis of EU trade and development policies.’
– Alan Matthews, European Review of Agricultural Economics
