Common Languages on Democracy in the Euro-Mediterranean Partnership

This Report examines various issues related with democracy and democracy promotion in Arab-Muslim-Western and Euro-Mediterranean relations, so as to identify opportunities to create a common language that can foster the search for common ground and common norms. Common languages are vantage points to talk about generally highly controversial questions and possibly forge agreements over time.
