Breaking the Silence on North Africa: A new EU-Africa Partnership After 2020 March 2018, Alfonso Medinilla, ECDPM Blog The growth of regional bodies has been an important trend since the 1990s. Many regional organizations have sought to emerge in ACP countries. Some have become key players in international relations. In particular, the African Union, the Pacific Islands Forum and the Cariforum have strengthened their respective roles, as have sub-regional organizations in Africa, including ECOWAS and SADC.

The priorities proposed by the European Union for the EU`s partnership for Africa are the achievement of peace and stability, the management of migration and mobility, the consolidation of democracy and good governance, the unwinding of economic opportunities, the achievement of human development standards and the fight against climate change. The proposal is fully in line with the outcome of the African Union and European Union summit in Abidjan in November 2017. Will regional organizations play a role in the post-Cotonou partnership? Goals The ACP-EU dialogue on migration and development was launched following the revision in 2010 of the provisions of Article 13 on migration of the 2000 Cotonou Agreement. In June 2010, the ACP-EU Council issued a joint declaration on migration and development, which sets out three pillars for strengthening cooperation and dialogue: migration and development, legal migration and irregular migration.
The Cotonou agreement expires in 2020. A new agreement is being considered between the EC and OACPS, which succeeds the CPA. Pending the conclusion of the new agreement, the ACP-EU MDM will be suspended from 2020. 1973 The United Kingdom`s accession to the European Community paves the way for the extension of Euro-African cooperation to the Commonwealth countries of Africa, the Caribbean and the Pacific.
