1st Preparatory Meeting: "Strengthening Euro-Mediterranean Relations"

Annual Conferences
Hotel Renaissance, Carthage, Tunis, Tunisia

The EuroMeSCo Secretariat, in collaboration with the Tunisian Association des Études Internationales (AEI), and with the support of the European Commission, organised the 1st Preparatory Meeting of the EuroMeSCo Annual Conference, which this year will be hosted in Amman on 16-17 October, and consider: The EMP Between Continuity and Reinforced Cooperation. Quo Vadis Barcelona?

The Preparatory Meeting, held in Tunis on 21-22 April, hoped to stimulate an initial debate on Euro-Maghrebian relations and any other issues deemed significant to the Euro-Mediterranean Process. Almost thirteen years after Barcelona, and two and a half years since the 2005 Summit, a number of key questions emerged during the discussions: what balance can be made of relations between the two shores of the Mediterranean and the institutional framework that from there resulted? What does the future hold? How may we stimulate a new momentum emerging within the Euro-Mediterranean Partnership, in the face of its complex evolutions, and express it through the various initiatives that exist on a regional, sub-regional and national level?
