Complementarity, coordination and coherence are the three key concepts of the articles on development cooperation included in the Treaty on European Union (Maastricht 1992). An evaluation of these concepts, as proposed by the combined evaluation units of the European Commission and member states, should focus on the increased effectiveness of European development cooperation as a result of the implementation of the three Cs in recent years.
This exploratory study investigates how these concepts are applied, what definitions are used
and how they are embedded in the international legal context.
The various forms of complementarity, coordination and coherence are analysed and commented on by a team of distinguished authors from different member states (UK, France and the Netherlands), brought together by Paul Hoebink of the Centre for International Development Issues at the University of Nijmegen.
