The Political Economy of Governance in the Euro-Mediterranean Partnership
The GO-EuroMed project focuses on the Euro-Mediterranean Partnership, in the context of EU efforts to improve governance throughout its neighbourhood.
The GO-EuroMed project assembles a team of economics and political science institutes from EU and Mediterranean Partner Countries, together reflecting the diversity of a dynamic region. Research will aim to identify multilateral, bilateral and domestic institutional design and management strategies for the key trade, investment and labour sectors. Although these institutions are ostensibly economic, their design and management cannot take place in a political vacuum - indeed, trade, investment and labour are deeply intertwined with domestic and international political processes. The project will evaluate growth strategies in the light of key political and social challenges facing the region, in order to produce economically desirable and politically feasible institutional solutions capable of furthering the Barcelona Process' goals in the Mediterranean Basin.
