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.



The Future of the European Neighbourhood Policy

Since its inception 20 years ago, there have been several attempts on behalf of the EU to adjust the European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP) to new circumstances, with the 2011 and 2015 reviews, as well as with the 2021 New Agenda for the Mediterranean. Recent developments affecting the Eastern Neighbourhood (with the creation of the European Political Community and the candidate status to the EU being granted to Ukraine and Moldova) have questioned the relevance and added value of the single umbrella of the ENP.

The survey “The future of the European Neighbourhood Policy” aims to reflect on these developments and what they mean for the coming years of the ENP.

The survey targeted respondents from the EU and SMCs, including policymakers, experts, and civil society representatives to put forward priorities related to the cooperation between the EU and SMCs on the future of the ENP. This report analyses the main results from this exercise, conducted in September and October 2023. It provides valuable insights on the understanding of a variety of experts and actors assessing the ENP and its future. It reviews the constitutive principles of the ENP as well as the main elements at the core of the ENP: political dialogue, trade, and mobility.
