Israel and the Barcelona Process: The First Five Years



The purpose of this contribution is to analyze Israel’s evolving thinking in relation to the Euro-Mediterranean initiative launched in 1994 by the European Commission, leading later to the Barcelona Conference of November 1995, where 27 EU and Mediterranean Non-EU Member Countries (MNMCs) adopted a Declaration of the same name, which became the basis of what is commonly called the Barcelona Process, much inspired by its successful predecessor, the so-called Helsinki Process.
