Are EU’s Economic Partnership Agreements Developmental? An Assessment of the Southern African Region

This article aims to show the changes and potential consequences in the
economic relations between the EU and Southern Africa, that the Economic
Partnership Agreements (EPAs) scheme is promoting. The main arguments for
changing the previous model, and for the deployment of a new discourse and
practice by the EU, clash with the approaches and proposals of some governments
in Southern Africa, and also with the views of many scholars. Therefore,
it is pertinent to ask to what extent can EPAs be really developmental in
Southern Africa and coherent with the rhetoric of partnership and promotion
of development by the EU in this region and the whole continent.
