Study to consider ACP scenarios for post-2020

Professor Dr. Mirjam van Reisen  has  been appointed by the Group of African, Caribbean and Pacific States to undertake a critical study on future perspectives for the ACP Group, aimed at reviewing the value and essence of the institution and how it can effectively adapt to changing geopolitical realities. The study will also consider various options and scenarios for post-2020, when the ACP Group’s main framework for partnership with the EU, the Cotonou Agreement, expires.
She will be soon carrying out outreach and consultations with a wide range of stakeholders, including state and non state actors at the national, regional and all ACP levels. Key issues for the research include the ACP Group’s achievements and the performance of its different organs and institutions in a new global environment, the ACP’s privileged relationship with the European Union in the context of trade and international agreements, as well as the ACP’s relations with other regions and international
“The ACP Group has a long and rich history defining its relations with the outside world and the former colonial powers after independence. In the new century the ideas and conception of cooperation is changing in a fundamental way and it can no longer be based on traditional dividing lines of established realities. This means that this exploration of the future of the ACP should go beyond the set paths, even though its historic achievements must inform the direction ahead", she has stated.
The outcomes of the assignment will outline recommendations for future outlooks and various scenarios for the ACP Group.
