The region which surrounds the Mediterranean Sea is termed as the Mediterranean area. This includes southern Europe, western nations of the Middle East and North African countries. EU has recently created a formal, unified policy towards other countries in the Mediterranean region. The European Neighbourhood Policy and the Union for the Mediterranean are the two institutional pillars which define the existing Euro-Mediterranean relations. These foreign policies are aimed at encouraging political and economic reform in the Mediterranean countries, and ensuring cooperation in the Euro-Mediterranean region. This book traces the progress of Euro-Mediterranean relations and policies, and highlights some of its key concepts and applications. It explores all the important aspects of this field in the present day scenario. Researchers and students in this field will be assisted by this book.
