EuroMed-2030: Long term challenges for the Mediterranean area
"This paper is built around ‘trends, tensions and transitions’ in the Euro-Mediterranean space. In ‘trends’ we examine the way in which critical issues in the region are evolving and how they might develop over the next twenty years. ‘Tensions’ considers how these trends will interact to generate stresses at different socio-political levels. ‘Transitions’ explores some options for intervention to correct malign tensions and benefit from benign ones; the particular choice of the ‘transitions’ is based on the four themes of cooperation described above: managing conflict; win-win projects; deeper economic integration and eventually moving towards a Euro-Mediterranean Community".
ORBIS is powered by ESPAS, the European Strategy and Policy Analysis System, a unique inter-institutional project aimed at strengthening the EU's efforts in the crucial area of forward planning. ESPAS brings together the European Commission, the European Parliament, the Secretariat General of the Council of the European Union and the European External Action Service to strengthen the Union's collective administrative capacity to identify and analyse the key trends and challenges, and the resulting policy choices, which are likely to confront Europe and the wider world in the decades ahead.
