Item description for Africa, Regional Cooperation and the World Market: Socio-Economic Strategies in Times of Global Trade Regimes, Paper 31 (NAI Discussion Papers) by Michael Brüntrup, Henning Melber & Ian Taylor...
Under the regime of the World Trade Organization, local and regional policies are increasingly determined by global factors. One example is the New Partnership for Africa's Development. It stresses an earlier notion of African Renaissance, which includes the emphasis on collective self-reliance, but at the same time seeks closer cooperation with the global trade system and its international agencies. Bi- and multilateral trade relations between external actors and individual African states or regional blocs are becoming ever more decisive. This is also true of the more recently negotiated Economic Partnership Agreements in the post-Lom era of EU-African relations. In light of such trends the question of coherence between trade as aid and other areas of development strategy and cooperation remains to be answered.
The contributions to this Discussion Paper reflect upon related matters of socio-economically viable strategies seeking to reconcile the global and the regional in an African perspective. They were originally presented to the Panel Regional Cooperation in Sub-Saharan Africa: Between Collective Self-Reliance and Global Trade Regimes organized by the Nordic Africa Institute within the 11th General Conference of the European Association of Development Research and Training Institutes in September 2005 in Bonn.
This publication is useful for economists, political scientists, policy makers and other professionals dealing with Africa in development assistance and in trade.
