Is Europe ready for post-2015 development

The European Year for Development coincides with the culmination of the post-2015 debate, but not by accident. The EU’s new Commission team, led by Jean-Claude Juncker, must get off to a running start. They should stimulate new ideas, champion key issues and have an open debate on how ‘universal’ the new global development goals should be – for both developing and developed countries here in Europe. Juncker has moved swiftly to introduce new, and potentially more coherent and flexible approaches to management, an encouraging start.

Major global changes are afoot and the EU will be called upon to prove its relevance and effectiveness to its own citizens, to its neighbours and to the world.
