Chapter Summary

Cooperation along the lines of political, security, economic, and cultural baskets brought prosperity, and heightened security as well as democratic change to the Southern Mediterranean, and hence peace and stability to benefit of EuroMed region and beyond. As for human rights and democracy, while the Barcelona Declaration refers to human rights and common commitment of all parties to them, it does so in only general terms as part of first objective of Partnership and by reference to the primary international Human Rights document, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Euro-Mediterranean Human Rights Network (EMHRN) calls for speeded up dialogue to feed into Neighbourhood Policy Action Plans, but also draws out core of human rights and actually protects them by institutionalizing, indeed 'supranationalising' and 'constitutionalising', human rights protection. The EU External Action Service's Human Rights and Democracy in the World Report documents the EU's response to the Arab Spring.
