Europe and Africa: The Making of European Development Aid with Veronique Dimier, Frederick Cooper, and Emmanuelle Saada


Date: Sep 27, 2016

Veronique Dimier, Associate Professor in Political Science at the Universite Libre de Bruxelles, and author of “The Invention of a European Development Aid Bureaucracy: Recycling Empire,” will present a discussion of how former colonial officials joined the ranks of the European administration in the 1960s to devise and implement the European Community development policy.

Dimier also examines how these officials built a management system devised to deal with the nascent political African elite. This administrative system evolved following the successive enlargements of the European Community and new international environment influenced by the World Bank and IMF.

Frederick Cooper, Professor of History at NYU, is also a key discussant and Emmanuelle Saada, Associate Professor of French and History at Columbia University, will serve as the moderator of the discussion.
