Chapter Summary

Africa and the EU signed a strategic partnership covering topics such as foreign and security policy, governance, development, climate change and cultural cooperation. Under the heading of peace and security, the intercontinental consultations included the AU Peace and Security Council and the EU Political and Security Committee and support for African peace and security architecture, but also explicitly targeted dialogue between EU and AU international mediators. The EU continued to be engaged in Sudan by providing humanitarian assistance in Darfur and giving financial and logistical support to AMIS, the AU mission in Sudan. The discussions on an African-EU strategic partnership were affected by the fierce struggle over EPAs. Europe regarded Africa as a region of war and crisis and did not really deliver on its promises, while China focused more on opportunities and ?mutual benefits' and was a quick mover. The EU had repeatedly expressed interest in trilateral EU-China-Africa cooperation.
