The future of the EMP in a changing context of transatlantic and regional relations

This Report assesses the impact of recent changes in US policies towards the Middle East and North Africa on the Euro-Mediterranean Partnership, the most significant element in EU policy towards North Africa and the Middle East. The Report is divided into two parts. The first includes an analytical overview and comparisons of the strategies, concepts and instruments deployed by the United States and the European Union towards the region. The second outlines various middle-term scenarios to assess the impact of various possible transatlantic developments on EU policy towards the Mediterranean and on the Euro-Mediterranean Partnership.
