2018/11 – European Centre for Development Policy Management (ECDPM); research paper; Author(s): Alisa Herrero Cangas; Andrew Sherriff; Mariella Di Ciommo; Sanne Thijssen

In the proposal for its next budget (2021-2027), the European Commission envisages a major restructuring of its external action architecture that reflects the EU’s ambition to pursue a more strategic, political and interest-driven external action. It includes the creation of a ‘Neighbourhood, Development and International Cooperation Instrument’ (NDICI) worth €89.2 billion, and of global scope. Up to 75% of funds are intended for political cooperation with partner countries and regions. This discussion paper by the European Centre for Development Policy Management (ECDPM) is an initial analysis of how the EU institutions are currently preparing for the next bilateral programming process. While there have been a number of encouraging developments, some potential policy-to-practice gaps need to be addressed early in the...

The EU and the corporate impunity nexus

17 Oct 2018 - 2018/10, Transnational Institute, Research Paper

This report  includes a collection of case studies illustrating how corporate impunity works and highlighting the failures of current approaches, particularly to address human rights violations and provide effective remedy to affected peoples and communities. The studies reveal a pattern where European corporations outsource their worst impacts to the Global South, with the help of the architecture of impunity that legitimises and legalises the operations of Transnational Corporation (TNCs). At the core of this architecture is the infamous investor-state dispute settlement (ISDS) system, a private arbitration system that allows TNCs to sue states whenever they consider that their future profits are threatened by new measures or policies aiming at improving social and environmental protection.

"People caught in crisis – those living in conflict, and those who are displaced within their own countries or across borders – often fall through the cracks of different authorities’ responsibilities or are explicitly excluded by governments in their national and sectoral plans. Without the concerted efforts of the international community to address the needs of people caught in crisis we will not achieve the SDGs for all, and the gap between this marginalised group and the rest of the world will grow." This study, examines country level progress against the SDGs and makes projections as to how much more effort will be needed to reach them by 2030.
