EU fisheries agreements with developing countries have long been criticised for environmental and developmental reasons. But some say that it would be worse for the environment and for local communities if the agreements were abandoned. A revision of the fisheries agreements is currently taking place as a part of the reform of the EU Common Fisheries Policy.

At this seminar, leading experts from Europe and Africa, with different perspectives on the fisheries agreements, will present their views on the conditions which may render the agreements fair and sustainable. Organiser and moderator is MEP Isabella Lövin (Greens, Sweden), rapporteur in the Fisheries Committee of the so-called External Dimension of the CFP, which includes fisheries agreements.
