ENoP Statement Towards a Comprehensive Strategy with Africa

The European network of Political Foundations (ENoP) welcomes the Joint Communication “Towards a comprehensive Strategy with Africa” that the European External Action Service and the European Commission have put forward to renew and strengthen the European Union’s partnership with Africa. We have prepared a joint statement with concrete suggestions on how to enrich the Strategy as a whole as well as its individual chapters.

We believe that in order to be a credible partner and have success in reinventing its partnership with Africa, the European Union should act now and abide by its core values, especially democracy, which is at the heart of the EU and that distinguishes our value-based approach from the ones of other actors. Only through a strong commitment to democratic values and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) can the EU achieve an inclusive and fair partnership with Africa.
