The House of Lords European Union Sub-Committee on External Affairs will take evidence from Paul Asquith, Engagement and Policy Manager at The African Foundation for Development as part of their inquiry into the European External Action Service (EEAS).
At 10.05am, Thursday 13 December, Committee Room 1, Palace of Westminster
- Paul Asquith, African Foundation for Development
The Committee will question Mr Asquith on whether the creation of the EEAS has had a positive impact on the delivery of the EU’s aid, particularly to African States, and how well the EU’s delegations are functioning. He will also be asked about how Non-Governmental Organisations work with the EEAS, whether lobbying is better done in Brussels or in Member States’ capitals and whether its creation has affected the capacity of NGOs to act on the ground.
