The Euro-Mediterranean Partnership [ ]

The GO-EuroMed project focuses on the Euro-Mediterranean Partnership in the context of the enlarged EU's efforts to encourage good governance throughout its neighbourhood. GO-EuroMed is a Specific Targeted Research Project co-funded by the European Commission under the 6th Framework Programme. Its objective is to develop policy relevant understanding of the political and institutional settings through which EU-Mediterranean relations are conducted. The GO-EuroMed consortium is coordinated by the JMC Berlin and includes research institutes and universities from Germany, France, Spain, Poland, Turkey, Morocco, Jordan and Lebanon. A core aim of the project is to provide new insights into Euro-Mediterranean governance by bringing European and Mediterranean perspectives together.
