Chapter Summary

The first half of the year was marked by a focus on translating the previous year's highlevel commitments into practice, making for a feeling of 'business as usual,' and planning for stock-taking events on international commitments such as the conference on financing for development in Doha in November. International attention, however, shifted substantially in the second half of the year, with the focus on the US presidential elections and the rapid unfolding of and early attempts to contain the financial and economic crisis in autumn, all of which have potential implications for African-European relations. In 2008, bilateral European relations with African states were not much in the limelight and the financial crisis absorbed much of the European leaders' attention.
