Bond, Patrick  (2008) EU-African Economic Partnership Agreements, Neoliberalism, and Eco-Social Resistance . Codesria conference on trade, Addis Ababa, 9-10 June  : 1-36.

Codesria mandate for this meeting:

Our collective responses to the EPAs must take several forms that would include a firm rebuttal of the EPAs based on solid scientific facts, as well as sound counter proposals for more socially inclusive and democratic development models within the continent, and more equitable and just relationships between Europe and Africa that would favour the economic and social development of Africa.”

Objectives of this presentation

  • Firm rebuttal of EPAs based on solid scientific facts - factor into trade costs some new calculations of “genuine savings” and the climate crisis, especially in relation to non-renewable resources

  • Sound counter proposals for more socially inclusive and democratic development models - until Bolivarian-type trade-related power relations emerge, learn from activists: decommodification strategies, and deglobalisation of capital

  • Just relationships between Europe and Africa- reparations and ecological debt repayment
