Book: The Interim Economic Partnership Agreements between the EU and African States

This book provides a comprehensive analysis of the African Economic Partnership Agreements (IEPAs) as they stand in early 2009. It also establishes the negotiations that remain to be completed and the challenges facing Africa in implementation, some of which require support from Europe. It provides both a summary of the principle features of very complex documents and also the foundations for the many follow-up studies needed to look in more detail at specific country, sectoral and other specific features of the IEPAs.
