In 2011 Fair Politician's colleague Jasper went to Rwanda to study the impacts of the EU's raw material policy. The aim was to find out how this policy could be made more coherent with the development objectives of the EU.

You can read the findings of the study in our publication: The EU raw materials policy and minig in Rwanda. Policy Coherence for Development in practice. Please click here.

The publication was presented in the European Parliament. Follow the link to see the presentation.
