Coping with Historical Responsibility: Trends and Images of the EU’s Development Policy

Part of the Palgrave Studies in European Union Politics book series (PSEUP)

The evolution of this policy, its many twists and turns, is thus an excellent example of how the Union’s global role has taken shape over the past five decades.
