Sharing findings at EU Dev Days 2015
DLP Director Dr Heather Marquette was among the speakers at this year's European Development Days, a two-day forum organised by the European Commission. She spoke on 4 June at a session discussing the question: 'How can development cooperation effectively fight corruption and promote good governance?'
There are still unresolved questions about the extent to which donors can successfully help developing countries improve their governance and fight corruption. This panel discussed lessons from developing countries about how the EU should approach governance and corruption in setting its development cooperation policy.
See a one-minute summary from Heather below, and further summary material on the panel discussions on the eudevdays website.
Each year, European Development Days attracts about 7 000 participants from over 140 countries, representing 1,200 organisations from the field of development cooperation, human rights and humanitarian aid. In bringing together the global development community, the European Union also engages political leaders, development practitioners, the private sector and civil society in shaping the EU's policies for tackling poverty worldwide.
