Strengthening the ACP-EU Assembly to meet today’s global challenges

Local governance, stepping up intra-ACP trade and common management of ACP-EU migration were among the topics discussed by the ACP-EU Joint Parliamentary Assembly (JPA) at its 31st session, which closed on Wednesday 15 June, in Windhoek, Namibia. In a debate on Wednesday, Members called for a renewed post-Cotonou architecture to adapt the ACP-EU partnership to new global challenges. Co-President ad interim Michèle Rivasi (Greens/EFA, FR) stressed the need to strengthen the parliamentary dimension and include civil society in the new form of cooperation. MEPs and their ACP counterparts were also joined by Mozambique’s former President Joaquim Chissano to debate the changing face of conflict and global security threats and their impact on global peace and stability. MEPs and MPs also discussed the prevention and management of epidemics in a post-Ebola context and the Zika virus threat.
