UfM and promotion of democracy in Jordan in focus of new EuroMeSCo papers
19 octobre 2010
Three new research papers – two on the Union for the Mediterranean and one on the promotion of democracy in Jordan – have been published on the EuroMeSCo website.
All stem from the European Commission-EuroMeSCo contract, which came to an end in October 2009.
The first two papers regard 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.
The papers can be downloaded in full from the EuroMeSCo website:
