Ideas for Development European Development Days Video

As Andris Piebalgs, the European Commissioner for Development, prepares a new strategy for 2011, EDD 2010 are an opportunity to reflect on the modernization of the EU’s development policy.

What is the impact of these outcomes on development aid? Will integrating development into the EU’s global foreign policy conflict with the national policies of Member States in this field? What would be the best way of applying a coordination of effective aid among Member States? How can a consistent policy, adapted to the new EUEuropean Union institutions, be defined?

How will European development policy adapt to the diversity of developing countries?

See Simon's response to these questions here (you can read his report on the European Development Days conference (European Development Cooperation: priorities for 2011) here):
