Discussions about the post-2015 global development framework provide an opportunity to reconsider the European Union’s potential role as a development actor for the coming decades. As development really only begins when poverty has been eradicated, the EU needs to broaden its focus beyond poverty to reversing widening socioeconomic inequality. Moreover, the MDGs experience has shown that progress is heavily influenced by the framework conditions for development. It is here that Europe’s greatest potential to promote better global development outcomes lies.
