New players in Africa like China, Brazil and other developing countries have a growing influence on the continent. These countries provide the African population with new opportunities and alternatives to the Western approach on aid and development.

Vienna’s VIDC and the ÖGFSE invited three panelists to discuss and explain a very controversial topic in the European civil society: development policy and development aid.

The range of topics includes the African perception of 50 years of western engagement on the continent, the European difficulties of agreeing to a common policy towards Africa and the analysis of the difference between intention an reality on the ground from an academic viewpoint.
