The EU-Tunisia Privileged Partnership: What Next?27 April 2018. From 10:00 | Presentation | English | Brussels
The European Union-Tunisia relationship is at a crossroad. The Privileged Partnership Action Plan 2013-2017 came to end and in their joint declaration following the EU -Tunisia Association Council on 11 May 2017, both parties “welcomed the positive momentum that characterises relations between Tunisia and the European Union, and stressed their commitment to reinforcing this partnership further and to opening up new opportunities, duly respecting the principle of a differentiated approach contained in the revised European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP)”.
Ahead of the May 2018 EU -Tunisia Association Council, a group of 4 Tunisian experts and their 4 European counterparts present a Joint Policy Study on the future of the EU -Tunisia partnership. The study is composed of 4 main chapters, each co-drafted by a Tunisian and a European expert. The four chapters offer readers an invaluable wealth of information regarding the state of EU-Tunisia relations. They also identify challenges that should be overcome and provide with ideas that should be considered in order to move forward. This project which is coordinated by the European Institute of the Mediterranean (IEMed) is undertaken in the framework of the EuroMeSCo ENI Project, co-funded by the European Union.
