Perspectives of European Foreign and Security Policy in the Mediterranean

by Hardy Ostry, Gerrit F. Schlomach

on the Eve of the German EU Council Presidency

On the occasion of the German EU Council Presidency, the Regional Program Near East / Mediterranean of the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung publishes the proceedings of the conference on “Perspectives of European Foreign and Security Policy in the Mediterranean on the Eve of the German EU Council Presidency“. Based on the concept of enlarged security, the contributions shed light on risk perceptions (terrorism, WMD, regional conflicts, migration etc.) in Europe as well as in selected Southern countries (among them Tunisia, Turkey, Morocco, Israel, Jordan). There is a major focus on the expectations and hopes of the southern partners towards Europe as well as the chances and possibilities of NATO and EU to support peaceful cooperation in the region. These proceedings are mainly the fruit of a conference with the same name, organized by the KAS Regional Program Near East / Mediterranean on 15. to 16. September 2006 in Antalya- Turkey.
