Development Cooperation of the ‘New’ EU Member States

A book presentation and discussion

  • Ela Drążkiewicz-Grodzicka, Marie Curie Fellow, Maynooth University, Ireland
  • Ondřej Horký-Hlucháň, Head of the Research Department, Institute of International Relations Prague, the Czech Republic
  • Simon Lightfoot, Senior Lecturer, School of Politics and International Studies, University of Leeds, UK
  • Chair and discussant: Mats Braun, Senior Lecturer, Metropolitan University Prague, the Czech Republic

Following the recent adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals as a new paradigm for the global development agenda by 2030, the event will particularly address the following points:

  1. What are the achievements of ‘new’ EU member states in development cooperation since 2004?
  2. How are they prepared for the more complex and political global agenda?
  3. How do the Czech Republic and Poland stand in comparison with other EU countries?

The presentation and the debate will be followed by a glass of wine.

‘The authors make a clear case for the limited effects of the imposed development policy-standards leading to a “shallow Europeanization”… This study forms a unique contribution to the field of European development cooperation studies.’
Louk Box, Honorary Professor of International Cooperation , Maastricht University

‘This is a timely and important contribution to the field of Development and EU studies. With the EU development assistance in flux, and the mounting criticism of the EU's 'missing the point' when it comes to dealing with the complexity and multifariousness of post-communist transitions – often simplistically and inadequately bundled in the “New Europe” entity – this collective volume offers a hitherto absent perspective and a critical insight in the emergence of Central European States as independent and influential actors.’
Elena A. Korosteleva, Professor of International Politics, University of Kent
