Chapter Summary

After many public discussions about European policy towards Africa in 2005, on the agenda in 2006 was defining activities and implementing promises, for instance at the meeting of European NGOs towards the end of the Austrian presidency of the EU in the first half of the year (22-23 June). It remained unclear, however, what impact the EU strategy intended alike for the common programmes of the Commission towards Africa and bilateral relations between EU member states and that continent will have at the national level within Europe. Central Africa served as an arena for much of the discussion on the political and military capabilities of an autonomous European security policy, specifically the deployment of a European Force (EUFOR) to the DR Congo. The mission was largely unpopular among the European electorate and its mandate was criticised.
