EU Development Policy and the Open Method of Coordination

This paper reviews the current state of the EU’s development policy reform agenda. It suggests that the extension of the Open Method of Coordination (OMC) to this area of EU activity would offer significant advantages. It reviews the EU’s experience with the OMC, identifies the strengths and weaknesses of this process and examines how it might relate to the current formulation and implementation of development policy. Considerable attention has been focused upon the relationship between the development objectives of EU policy, defined in terms of their contribution to poverty reduction and the Millennium Development Goals, and general external relations policy, reflecting the EUs broader political, strategic and commercial interests. At the same time the effectiveness of the European Commissions aid administration has faced continuing critical comment. This paper is intended to introduce a new element into this policy debate, drawing upon developments in other areas of the EUs activities, namely the Open Method of Coordination (OMC) in social and economic policy.
