PLATFORMA position on the EU’s New Partnership Framework with third countries
19 September 2016
PLATFORMA calls on the European Union to:
- Remove the link between development aid and partner countries’ performance in migration and reject the diversion of development funds to security-related projects.
- Give local governments in partner countries a voice in the design, implementation and evaluation of the “compacts” between the European Union and their national governments – particularly in three core policy fields for local governments:o Local Economic Developmento Resilience to criseso Administrative reform and decentralisation
- Promote city to city cooperation between Europe and partner countries as a key instrument for the implementation of the new approach.
