MEDRESET Policy Papers n°10 – Towards a more reflexive EU in the Mediterranean : Final policy recommendations of MEDRESET
MEDRESET Policy Papers n°10

In MEDRESET’s final policy recommendations, aimed at the new European Parliament, Commission and High Representative, it is proposed that the EU should become a more reflexive actor in the Mediterranean. Three related steps are key to take into this direction: (1) Substance: Begin to have periodic screening reports of EU policies and the possible harmful effects they have, and set up a study commission to reflect on a new development model for the whole Mediterranean, Europe included. (2) Actors: Work with local non-co-opted civil society and include it in all stages of policy-making towards third countries. (3) Instruments: Come forward with a reconciliation, “do no harm” and dialogue policy.
