Building Blocks for the Euro-Mediterranean Charter on Peace and Stability

This is the final report generated by the EuroMeSCo Working Group on the Charter. The report is divided into three parts. The first one deals with general political and institutional issues; the second and third parts elaborate on the instruments the Charter is supposed to set up to make joint Euro-Med decisions and actions possible. On the basis of the achievement of an enhanced political dialogue, the report sets forth proposals to establish a number of instruments to obtain common early warning and take eventually joint action in the field of conflict prevention, like situation centres, conflict prevention centres and planning units.
