ODI on... the European Union budget 2013

There is a lot at stake for the EU’s development agenda in the next round of discussions on the EU budget, with significant downward pressure on the external action budget.

The European Council is meeting in Brussels to discuss the next round of the EU budget, known as the multi annual financial framework (MFF). There is a lot at stake for the EU’s development agenda with significant downward pressure on the external action budget.

ODI researchers have analysed the effects of several elements of the EU budget and the EU's policies on development. We have examined the effectiveness of external spending, the effects of the European Common Agricultural Policy and more generally examined the effects of EU actions on development.
