EuroMeSCo Euromed Survey

The EuroMeSCo Euromed Survey builds on an accumulated 10 years’ experience of the IEMed’s Euromed Survey and aims to generate first-hand data and evidence on European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP) related policies and priorities that can be of direct use for policy-makers and other stakeholders, and contribute to evidence-based research and inclusive policy-making. It also serves as a powerful tool to raise awareness among various constituencies such as academia, media, NGOs, companies, international organisations, governments´ representatives and diplomats familiar with regional and national ENP South issues to mobilise all sorts of experts, giving them the possibility to express their assessment and perception and put forward recommendations.

The survey report presents an analysis of the results including a descriptive report that provides an overall picture of the main results and a qualitative report containing analytical articles written by renowned experts that echo some specific results, offering keys to better understand some of the main issues at stake.



Towards sustainable and mutually beneficial migration partnerships in the Southern Mediterranean

The European Institute of the Mediterranean (IEMed) within the framework of the project “EuroMeSCo Connecting the dots” and the International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD) within the project “EuroMed Migration 5”, launched the survey “Towards sustainable and mutually beneficial migration partnerships in the Southern Mediterranean”, an exercise which aimed to reflect on improving migration partnerships between the EU and the Southern Mediterranean countries.

In line with the Joint Communication on a Renewed Partnership with the Southern Neighbourhood and the New Pact on Migration and Asylum, the EU is encouraging more systematic efforts in coordinating action with neighbouring countries. To strengthen this coordination, it envisages the development of migration partnerships, as tailor-made agreements encapsulating the policy priorities of both partners and EU countries.

This survey aims to reflect priorities and viewpoints in the respective national contexts of the South Mediterranean countries, thereby charting a path for an evidence-driven approach to partnership negotiations. It targeted respondents from Southern Mediterranean Countries, including policymakers, experts, and civil society representatives.
