Euro-Mediterranean Partnership (or Barcelona Process)[edit]

A Union launched in 1995 by the Foreign Ministers of the 15 EU Members at the time, and was conceived as the framework for further cooperation with all countries in the Mediterranean Sea. The Euro-Mediterranean Partnership now consists of 44 members (28 EU members states and 16 non-EU countries) and serves as a multilateral forum for cooperation within the framework of the European Neighborhood Policy (2004). The three main dimensions of the partnership encompass Political and Security Dialogue, Economic and Financial Partnership, and Social, Cultural and Human Partnership.
