The Paper assesses the extent to which the European Union can be called “multilateral”, analyzing the action of the European Commission and the Member States in their relations with partner countries, international organizations and NGOs as regards the implementation of energy policies and migration in the Mediterranean. The paper concludes by examining the extent to which effective multilateralism can be defined, given the results of the EU’s commitments to these policies internally and externally.

The EU Neighbourhood and Comparative Modernization

The document analyzes the role of the EU in promoting human rights and democracy (in particular: the support for political pluralism and the prohibition of inhuman and degrading treatment) in neighboring countries, presenting three case studies: Bosnia-Herzegovina, Moldova and Morocco. The aim of the paper is to assess whether the EU prefers an activity of a bilateral or multilateral basis and work, then, by examining three possible scenarios with regard to European action: the bilateral, multilateral action and the ” non-action “. The paper concludes that for various reasons, the EU rarely use the multilateral approach to achieve the objectives in these areas.
