Abstract

Angesichts des globalen Wettlaufs um Afrikas Ressourcen ist die EU darauf aus, Wirtschaftliche Partnerschaftsabkommen (EPAs) mit afrikanischen Staaten bis Oktober 2014 abzuschließen. Diese EPAs sind sollen nicht nur der Liberalisierung des Handels dienen, sondern auch die Wirtschaftsentwicklung in Afrika fördern und so eine win-win Situation in einer Partnerschaft auf Augenhöhe schaffen. Viele Afrikaner verdächtigen die EU jedoch mit doppelter Zunge zu reden und egoistisch eigene Exportinteressen zu Lasten eines inklusiven Wachstums in afrikanischen Ländern zu verfolgen. Die vorgeschlagenen EPAs der ECOWAS dienen als Beispiel um zu zeigen, dass die Spannungen zwischen afrikanischen Ländern und der EU im Wesentlichen auf der Diskrepanz zwischen dem Diskurs und der Praxis der EU Außenhandels- und Entwicklungshilfepolitik beruhen, ebenso wie auf versteckten Interessen der EU-Direktorate und Mitgliederstaaten. Die wachsende Bereitschaft afrikanischer Staaten, die EU-Außenhandelsinteressen in Frage zu stellen wird effektiv unterstützt durch nachhaltige pro-aktive Agitation von NRO und zivilgesellschaftlichen Gruppen innerhalb und außerhalb Afrikas.
