Dr Lister continued her research into the external relations and development policy of the European Union. Notably she organised a major conference at the European Parliament Office in October 1996 on ‘The European Union and the Developing Countries’. Speakers included the UK Minister for Overseas Development, Baroness Chalker, ACP Joint Assembly Co-President Lord Plumb, as well as European and ACP officials and academics. An edited volume of the conference papers is being published by Macmillan Press and Dr Lister was interviewed on Radio France International.

At the annual conference of the Development Studies Association in September 1995, Dr Lister organised the European Development Policy Study Group. With over 60 members, the Group is now actively engaged in organising conferences and formulated the position paper adopted by the Development Studies Association on the future of the Lomé Convention. In addition, with Dr Stephen Dearden of Manchester Metropolitan University, she co-edits a series of discussion papers on EU development policy published by Manchester Metropolitan University and the European Development Policy Study Group of the Development Studies Association. These are placed on the internet by the European Centre for Development Policy Management in Maastricht (seven papers so far).
