Euro-Mediterranean Partnership for the Twenty-First Century

Edited by Hans Günter Brauch, Privatdozent at the Free University of Berlin, Chairman of Afes-Press, Antonio Marquina, Professor of International Relations at Complutense University in Madrid and Director of UNISCI and Abdelwahab Biad, Professor, University of Rouen in France with the language assistance of Peter H. Liotta, Professor at the U.S. Naval War College, Newport, RI in the USA

In this book security experts and peace researchers from North Africa, Europe and the US analyse the evolution of the Euro-Mediterranean process between Barcelona (1995) and Stuttgart (1999), and offer proposals for confidence- and partnership-building measures among the twenty-seven countries. The contributors review the Northern debate and Southern perceptions of the four trans-Mediterranean security dialogues of OSCE, NATO, WEU and the EU and, in two case-studies on Bosnia-Herzegovina and Cyprus, they discuss the relevance of this concept for conflict resolution. Finally, they propose short-, medium- and long-term partnership-building measures and projects and a code of conduct for good Euro-Mediterranean relations for the twenty-first century.
