The Union for the Mediterranean (UfM): a critical approach
MetadataShow full item record
The seventh anniversary of the establishment of the Union for the Mediterranean enables to have a greater perspective to examine its development. Therefore, this work provides some reflections on the path followed by the Union for the Mediterranean, which has generally been described by the doctrine as negative. The initial project promoted by the then candidate for the French Republic presidency, Nicolas Sarkozy, coped with unfavourable circumstances since its creation, which have determined its progress. This paper analyses in a critical approach the development of the UfM, as well as the reasons for its stagnation, while proposing measures to overcome it, and achieve their full effect in the medium term.
