Barcelona Plus: Towards a Euro-Mediterranean Community of Democratic States
On 30th November, in The Hague, Euro-Mediterranean Ministers "agreed that a comprehensive review, prepared by Senior Officials of the Barcelona Process should be submitted to Ministers in Luxembourg for approval; this should provide the basis for decisions on the future of the process. In that respect the two Euro-Mediterranean independent networks of research organisations, EuroMeSCo and FEMISE, were requested to contribute to the review of the Barcelona Process. Other independent actors and non-governmental organisations should also feel free to make their own submissions. These contributions will be the subject of discussion by Senior Officials.”

In view of this decision, EuroMeSCo prepared a report with an assessment of the ten years of the Euro-Mediterranean Partnership (EMP), as well as a series of recommendations for building Barcelona Plus based on the good practices of the Partnership. In the making of this report a few papers were commissioned:
