Delivering 21st Century Aid through the EEAS

On the 6th of May CTA attended the conference “Delivering 21st Century Aid through the European External Action Service?“ organized by Oxfam Solidarity with the support of The Centre in Brussels. The event offered the opportunity to discuss a new report called “21st Century Aid” issued by Oxfam International in April 2010 outlining what good aid is - especially the argument that aid should be granted with the sole objective of tackling poverty. It brought together Mrs. Penny Lawrence, Director of Oxfam Great Britain International, HE Brave Ndisale, Ambassador of Malawi to the European Union and Mr. Christian Leffler, Deputy Director General, DG Development, European Commission and several representatives of policy making entities and NGOs in Brussels. Different perspectives on the future of EU development aid were debated in the context of EU Member States’ negotiation for a common position at the UN Millennium Development Goals summit in September.
