EU-ACP Economic Partnership Agreements (EPAs): Institutional and substantive issues

Publication Date 2007
Content Type


Following a Summary, the publication is organised into three sections. Section 1 (Chapters II.1-II.2) discusses the legal and institutional setting of EU-ACP and intra-ACP (regional) relations within which the negotiations are taking place. Section 2 (Chapters II.3-II.6) addresses a range of substantive issues that are addressed in the negotiations, and finally Section 3 (Chapters II.7-II.8) reviews the relation between aid and trade in the EPA negotiations.

The literature described and discussed in this publication dates from September 2007 and earlier. Because of a natural time lag between proposals being made in the negotiations and their discussion in the literature, most developments in the negotiations subsequent to May 2007 are not covered. These include the EU market access offer of May 2007 and its new offer on rules of origin of October 2007.
