Call for input: EU External Financial Instruments


As Chair of the European Parliament Working Group on the EU's External Financial Instruments, I ask for your input on my report on the implementation and future of these instruments. The report seeks to assess spending by the EU in third countries under its external financing instruments in the 2014-2017 period in order to make recommendations for the 2018-2020 period. The third and final part of the report will seek to make concrete proposals for the post 2020 financial architecture of the EU's external relations. 

Civil society organisations, public and private sector non-profit organisations, NGO's as well as international and regional organisations that have directly or indirectly worked with EU funding under the instruments listed below are invited to submit input to the report. Please share your thought (no longer than two pages) via email to  

Please note that a hearing on this topic will be held in the European Parliament on January 22nd 2018.
