Abstract (Swedish)
This essay is an analysis of the EU Common Agricultural Policy reform of 2003 and its impact on the economic growth and income distribution in African countries. In what follows we outline the most significant effects of the reform, and its purpose.

The effect on income distribution is analysed by testing the change in GINI-index, before and after the reform, with a Wilcoxon signed rank test. The result of the regression analysis indicates a significant increase in the economic growth rate explained by the CAP-reform. Testing the change in income distribution did not generate a significant result and... (More)

Testing the change in income distribution did not generate a significant result and therefore we cannot conclude that the reform has affected the income gap in the investigated countries. (Less)
