Title: Euro-Mediterranean Partnership
Alternative Title(s): Barcelona Process
Available From: http://europa.eu.int/comm/external_relations/euromed/index.htm
Description: The Euro-Mediterranean Partnership (Barcelona Process) commenced in Barcelona, November 27-28, 1995, and created a framework of political, economic and social relations between the Member States of the European Union and Partners of the Southern Mediterranean. The Partnership comprises 35 members: 25 EU Member States and 10 Mediterranean Partners (Algeria, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestinian Authority, Syria, Tunisia and Turkey). Libya has observer status since 1999.

The Barcelona Declaration, adopted during the November 1995 meeting, advanced three main objectives: a common area of peace and stability, gradual establishment of a free-trade area, and understanding between cultures and exchanges between civil societies. The Partners agreed to establish a Euro-Mediterranean Free Trade Area (EMFTA) by 2010.
