In September the second EU-South Africa partnership summit will take place in South Africa, closely following the first summit held in Bordeaux in 2008.

The event, taking place in Kleinmond on 11 September, will review progress made in this two-year old strategic alliance, towards signing a revised Trade, Development and Co-operation Agreement. SAIIA’s EU-Africa programme has conducted research into various aspects of EU-Africa collaboration since 2006. Relevant documents are available for download below.
