New papers

Three new papers have been added to EuroMeSCo publications.

While these papers have, for editorial reasons, put in the “Other Research Papers” section, all stem from European Commission-EuroMeSCo contract that came to an end in October 2009.


The papers by Agnieszka K. Cianciara, The Union for the Mediterranean and Eastern Partnership: Perspectives from Poland, Czech Republic and Hungary, and the one by Ahmed Driss, Southern perceptions about the Union for the Mediterranean, are the outcome of the EuroMeSCo-funded research project on “New EU Member States’ Positions regarding the Union for the Mediterranean”, led by the Institute of Public Affairs-IPA, Warsaw, in partnership with the Centre d’Etudes Méditerranéennes Internationales-CEMI, Tunis.

The paper by Anna Khakee with Mona Khalaf, Hani Hourani and May Al-Taher, A Long-Lasting Controversy. Western Democracy Promotion in Jordan, is the result of a EuroMeSCo research led by the Mediterranean Academy for Diplomatic Studies-MEDAC, Malta, in partnership with the Al Urdun Al–Jadid Research Center-UJRC, Amman, on “Jordanian Perceptions of Western Democracy Promotion”.

The first two papers regard current institutional and political developments in Euro-Mediterranean cooperation, namely the Union for the Mediterranean. The third paper (a follow-up to a previous EuroMeSCo pilot study on Morocco) examines how Western democracy promotion efforts are perceived in a key Middle Eastern country, Jordan, one of the countries in the region that has received the most democracy assistance in recent years.
