The Saana Institute was invited to participate at a Department for International Development (DFID) internal trade and development “open ideas day” in February 2015. The event featured leading trade policy thinkers and practitioners from think tanks and universities across Europe.
Saana’s contribution to the event outlined key avenues for reflection when it comes to supporting regional integration in developing countries. Drawing on its extensive in-house expertise in designing regional integration support programmes, Saana’s Tom Pengelly and Quentin de Roquefeuil argued that reflection could usefully take place along three dimensions: focus, governance and delivery.
This policy brief outlines their argument in more detail. You can access all the contributions to the open ideas day here.
