The Arab Awakening - Mapping the changes in EU and US policies

11 July 2012

Eighteen months since the beginning of the Arab Spring, the situation in the Middle East and North Africa is still fluid, and the regional balance of power is changing, with new actors emerging and influencing this changing landscape. The EU and US are closer to each other than to many other actors who play a role in the region and have shared values and interests to advance. This workshop discussed the similarities and differences in the EU and US approaches in the region, and the extent to which their policies are delivering results in the region, and whether they have maintained their promises to the countries in transition.
