Résumé
The European Union promotes its values, namely human dignity, freedom, democracy, equality, the rule of law and respect for human rights, both internally as well as around the world. But also the concept of good governance, especially in connection to the promotion of civil society organisations, has gained more and more importance in the EUs relations towards third countries since its emergence in the late 1990s. This thesis assesses the methods as well as the legal basis of the European Unions promotion of good governance and civil society organisations in Africa, particularly in Ethiopia. To this cause this paper provides a mapping of the EUs external action toolbox, assesses the legal basis for its application, and demonstrates the implementation of its instruments in Africa. The second part of this thesis deals with the implementation of the EUs external action toolbox in Ethiopia. For this purpose the main areas of concern regarding good governance and civil society organisations in Ethiopia were assessed through an analysis of Ethiopias evaluation by various international institutions. In a second step, the paper seeks to outline how the European Union uses its external action toolbox in order to address these areas of concern in Ethiopia.
