A new European leadership for a fairer world, or another “Washington Consensus”?

The presentation today of the European Commission communication on the EU’s future Development Policy is timely given that Europe is trying to reconnect with its people. With nine out of ten Europeans believing that helping people in poor countries is important they hope that the EU will provide leadership in building a better, more inclusive world which honours shared values and recognises shared responsibilities. “Ordinary European people do demonstrate their solidarity with victims of disaster and injustice, as shown in the spontaneous and overwhelming response to the Indian Ocean tsunami,” said Simon Stocker, Director of Eurostep. “These expressions of solidarity underline the need for the EU to work for a fairer world in which injustices and inequalities are abolished, women empowered, human rights respected and the environment protected”.
