18 May 2005
Fraser Cameron (Senior Adviser to EPC on international programmes) and Eberhard Rhein (Senior Adviser to EPC on neighbourhood policy)



The geopolitical situation of the Mediterranean and the Middle East has changed significantly since the Barcelona Process was launched in 1995, not least due to international developments including the war in Iraq. In this Issue Paper, Fraser Cameron and Eberhard Rhein assess the achievements of the Barcelona Process and examine the proposals made for the wider region as part of the European Neighbourhood Policy. The authors reflect on the future of democracy  in the region and outline ways toward positive trans-Atlantic cooperation in the wider Middle East.
