EU support for governance reforms has gained prominence in the EU’s external relations and particularly in the EU’s development policy. However, the EU’s engagement in this field has come under considerable pressure in recent years. It is by no means automatic that the EU will continue and further increase its engagement in supporting governance reforms. In this context, the objective of this study is to summarise evidence from academic research on why the EU and other donors should support governance reforms and under which conditions EU support positively contributes to governance reforms.

Ministers for Kenya and Rwanda last week signed the East African Community (EAC)-European Union (EU) Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) allowing for continued favourable access to the lucrative European market. This signals a start of the EAC Partner States securing the Duty Free Quota Free market access to the EU on a non-unilateral offer but on contractual basis. EPAs are trade and development agreements negotiated between the EU and African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) partners engaged in regional economic integration processes.
