The dilemmas of African development continue to haunt both African and western institutions and governments. Here, Christopher Rowan offers an original interpretation of the evolving concept of partnership as it operates within the current relationship between the European Union and the Africa, Caribbean and Pacific group. Framing his discussion in terms of the human right to water, Rowan presents detailed case studies of water aid from the EU to Lesotho and Mozambique, and explores the persisting inequities in the discourse and processes of development. With a close analysis of the interaction between non-governmental organisations, local elites, states and international actors, this book is a timely and insightful addition to perspectives on relations between the global North and South.

Author Biography - Christopher Rowan

Christopher Rowan was awarded a PhD in International Relations from Nottingham Trent University. Prior to his academic research, he spent ten years living and working in different parts of the 'developing world'. During his time in Africa he witnessed first hand the problems associated with drought, which spurred this study of EU aid to water projects in the Southern African Development Community of the Africa, Caribbean and Pacific group.
