Updating Economic Partnership Agreements to Today’s Global Challenges

African and Pacific countries continue to negotiate challenging Economic Partnership Agreements (EPAs) with the European Union. These agreements have the potential to help African countries accelerate their economic growth and develop more resilient economies.

However, there are questions about the structure and content of EPAs, as well as their ability to constitute instruments to leverage economic growth. This project contributed to a critical review of Economic Partnership Agreements.
