Publication Euro Med : The report: “A moment to reflect: Creating Euro-Mediterranean bonds that deliver”
The 25th anniversary of the Barcelona Process presented a timely moment to assess the past and to explore new opportunities for stronger bonds between both shores of the Mediterranean. In an era of globalisation, we are ever more interconnected – for the best and for the worst. In times of the pandemic, humankind faces a global crisis and the Euro-Mediterranean area is no exception to this. However, crises also bear an opportunity, if not an imperative, to adjust our course of action. Current decisions will shape the region for years to come.
This report brings together contributions by experts and testimonies by those who are engaged in the creation of “Euro-Mediterranean bonds that deliver” through different professional domains. The current pandemic is an opportunity to relaunch relations between the EU and its Mediterranean neighbours, emphasising the existing potential for a more inclusive, prosperous and positive future. How can the Euro-Mediterranean agenda be adapted to this new reality, once the storm has passed? A joint report by CIDOB, Elcano Royal Institute and Friedrich Naumann Foundation Madrid.
