"The Lisbon Treaty puts European international and development cooperation at a cross-road. Will the Union be able to keep up its strong joint record? Hoebink et al provide a well-chosen, inviting mix of insights in some of the multiple challenges emerging."

"Paul Hoebink and his co-authors make two important contributions in this volume. First, they bring clear-headed analysis to bear on the important question of Europes contribution to global poverty reduction. And, second, they help build a community of scholars and practitioners whose collective effort will translate analysis into action."
