European Development Days event - The EU’s Global Gateway: market creation or international development?
The Global Gateway is a plan to support infrastructure development around the world, which aims to mobilise €300 billion between 2021-27 for connectivity projects, notably in the digital, climate, energy, transport and social sectors. While being hailed as an innovation for EU development policy, the initiative raises many questions in relation to competing geopolitical interests, repackaging of existing commitments from European institutions and DFIs, and the developmental demands of the recipient countries. Join us to debate this very timely topic!
This event took place as part of the European Development Days 2022
