Africa-EU: Frank dialogue on governance and Human Rights

The fourth lunch-time seminar on the future of Africa-EU relations organized on 20 January 2014 by the European Commission through the JAES Support Mechanism re-emphasised the importance of promoting democratic governance and fighting against corruption to support sustainable development. The truthful and open views shared during the meeting showed that the partnership has come a long way in creating better conditions for dialogue between Africa and the EU on sensitive issues such as corruption and human rights.
The seminar brought together more than 100 participants from African Embassies, EU Member States, international organisations, research institutes, civil society and the private sector.
Several key messages that emerged from the intensive discussions. African and EU have common goals regarding good-governance, human rights, the fight against corruption as well as the promotion of greater transparency and accountability.Although good governance, justice, rule of law, the management of natural resources and fight against corruption are exercised at country level, there is an added-value in addressing it at continental level to promote shared values and harmonise. Good governance, including the institutionalisation of rule of law, of strong judiciary systems and fight against corruption is a permanent process; Africa and EU should work together on those issues without pointing fingers at each other.
