On 21 September 2021, the Commission published its proposal for a new EU scheme of generalised preferences (GSP). Two of the current scheme's three components are due to expire at the end of 2023, which would deprive developing countries of a vital opportunity to trade under preferential terms with the EU. Therefore, renewing the scheme appears to be both a necessity and an opportunity to strengthen its conditionality in the light of lessons learned and the increased urgency for dealing with the ...

At least one of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set by the United Nations (UN) will be missed in 2030 – SDG 2 – 'zero hunger' – also endangering the accomplishment of the rest of the SDG goals under Agenda 2030. Hunger and malnutrition are rising dramatically across the world, a trend aggravated by the pandemic.

On 5 September, a coup perpetrated by the military removed the President of Guinea, Alpha Condé, from power.

Africa, a continent of strategic importance for the EU, has been in the spotlight of EU attention in recent years for a variety of reasons.

However, the sixth EU African Union Summit, planned for the end of 2020, was postponed due to the global ...
