Elite Survey: How Local Elites Perceive the EU and its Policies in the Mediterranean
This document summarizes the findings of MEDRESET Work Package 3 (WP3). This WP surveyed elite responses to EU policies in the Mediterranean region through a comprehensive qualitative fieldwork having covered 9 different countries (i.e. Lebanon, Egypt, Iran, Israel, Morocco, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Tunisia, Turkey). Respondents were asked to analyse their countries’ resistance to or adoption of the EU conceptualization of the Mediterranean, assess the EU policies targeting the region and identify current geopolitical issues they consider of crucial importance.
