Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


How can it be that the European Union’s agricultural policies are kept, when the consequences are so severe in Least Developed Countries? The starting point is the criticism of the CAP which state that the consequences on East Africa (as a case study for one of the poorest regions in the world) are severe and that also the positive effects on the EU are questionable. The analysis is achieved by describing the impact and functionality of the CAP on both the EU and East Africa. Moreover, the influence and intention of interest groups in the EU decision-making process are stated and clarified, such as the transnational corporations, the WTO, some non-governmental organisations and the European farmers’ representatives.
