The Cotonou Agreement replaced the Lomé Convention, which has served as the basis for development cooperation between acp countries and the EU since 1975. However, the Cotonou Agreement is much broader than any previous agreement. This is a period of 20 years and is based on four main principles: in addition, the element of `good governance` has been included in the Cotonou Agreement as an `essential element`, the violation of which may lead to the partial or total suspension of development cooperation between the EU and the whitewashed country. In addition, it was agreed that serious cases of corruption, including acts of corruption, could trigger a consultation process and possibly lead to the suspension of aid. A second innovation of the Cotonou Agreement concerns the participation of non-state actors and local governments in development cooperation. They are now seen as complementary actors to central governments, which have traditionally been the main actors in cooperation BETWEEN the EU and ACP countries. Dayanışmanı gerçekten takdir ediyorum. I very much appreciate your cooperation. The Cotonou Agreement aims to strengthen the political basis for ACP-EU development cooperation. Therefore, political dialogue is one of the key aspects of the agreements and deals with new topics that do not fall within the scope of development cooperation, such as peace and security, the arms trade and migration.
