Bodenstein on EU Development Policy and the EU as a Collective Actor

March 29, 2017

Associate Professor Thilo Bodenstein made a presentation during a round table debate on March 23 organized by Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE) to celebrate the launch of the special issue of Development Policy Review. The issue, which is available for free download until April 23, focuses on the effect that recent crises inside Europe (such as Brexit and migration) are having on European development cooperation. Bodenstein is a co-editor and has co-authored two articles for the special issue – on EU development policy and, with SPP Associate Professor Achim Kemmerling, on The European Union as a Collective Actor: Aid and Trade in African Public Opinion. "The publication of this issue is especially well timed coming as it does during a period when people are focused on what Brexit will mean for the future of the European Union," commented Bodenstein.
