The European Neighbourhood Policy and the Southern Mediterranean


This book aims to pave the way for a better informed debate on the EU’s impact on the southern Mediterranean countries in relation to its policies included in the Barcelona Process, the Euro-Mediterranean Partnership (EMP), the European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP) and the Union for the Mediterranean (UfM) while presenting experiences of some of the regional countries such as Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Libya, Morocco, and Syria. The book aims to highlight the transformation that Turkish foreign policy and Turkey’s relations with the EU have gone through after the 1999 Helsinki European Council decision on Turkey’s candidacy and the Brussels European Council decision in 2004 to open EU accession negotiations with Turkey. And finally, it places Turkey at the centre of the debates on enlargement and the ENP, while illustrating the experiences of the other Mediterranean countries in the region.

Product of the EU-CONSENT conference "The European Neighbourhood Policy and the Southern Mediterranean: Drawing from the Lessons of Enlargement" co-organized in Ankara on 23 November 2007 by the Center for European Studies at the Middle East Technical University (CES-METU) and the Istituto Affari Internazionali (IAI).
