The EU countries involved in the Union for the Mediterranean (UfM) appear
unbothered by promoting "integration" -- or even claiming "a common
heritage" -- with countries such as Mauritania, where, according to recent
reports, up to 20% of the population (Haratines and other Afro-Mauritanian
groups) is enslaved, and anti-slavery activists are regularly tortured and
detained.

There is not the slightest allusion in the UfM yearly report, or in the 2017
Roadmap for Action, to the fact that in most Muslim countries, sharia law
influences the legal code -- especially regarding marriage, divorce,
inheritance and child custody -- and that gender inequality may therefore be
institutionalized and not something likely to change, regardless of the
number of UfM projects.

Given these large sums of money involved, it is remarkable that the UfM and
its activities enjoy little to no scrutiny in the European press.

In July, the Union for the Mediterranean (UfM) celebrated its 10-year
anniversary. Most Europeans, however, are unlikely to have heard about the
Union, let alone the anniversary. The media rarely reports on the UfM and
its activities.

The participating countries in the UfM are the 28 European Union (EU) member
states and the Southern Mediterranean countries, which include Albania,
Algeria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Mauritania,
Monaco, Montenegro, Morocco, "Palestine", Syria (temporarily suspended),
Tunisia and Turkey. Libya has observer status in the UfM. The UfM is chaired
by a "co-presidency" shared between the European Union and Jordan. The UfM
Secretariat maintains the daily operations of the UfM and is run by a
Secretary General, presently Nasser Kamel (Egypt).

The UfM was launched by a decision of the UfM Heads of State and Government
in Paris in July 2008, and constitutes an institutionalization of the
Barcelona Process, which began in November 1995 with the signing of the
Barcelona Declaration.

According to the European Institute of the Mediterranean (IEMed), the
Euro-Mediterranean alliance launched by the Barcelona Declaration Process
"was structured around three main work areas (political and security
dialogue; economic and financial partnership; and social, cultural and human
partnership)" between the EU and the mainly Muslim majority countries in
North Africa and the Middle East (usually referred to in UfM context as the
Southern Mediterranean).

In January 2017, the 43 foreign ministers of the UfM agreed on a "Roadmap
for Action" in Barcelona, which aims at "enhanced regional cooperation and
integration in the Mediterranean," setting out "three key interrelated
priorities, regional stability, human development and integration." It was
the first political document adopted by the UfM foreign ministers since
2008.

The UfM lists a number of ways in which it seeks to achieve regional
stability and human development. One of them is "Intercultural and
Interfaith dialogue" the aim of which is, among other things:

"[T]o exert all efforts to bridge any potential cultural divide to fight
against extremism and all forms of racism and to build upon a common
heritage and aspirations. Intercultural and Interfaith dialogue in the
Mediterranean is an important underlying dimension of all regional
cooperation activities in the framework of the UfM." [1]

The EU countries involved in the UfM appear unbothered by promoting
"integration" -- or even claiming "a common heritage" -- with countries such
as Mauritania, where, according to recent reports, up to 20% of the
population (Haratines and other Afro-Mauritanian groups) is enslaved, and
anti-slavery activists are regularly tortured and detained.

The UfM has held 15 ministerial conferences on "key strategic areas" in the
past 5 years on topics such as, Strengthening the role of Women in Society
(Egypt, November 2017), Sustainable Urban Development (Egypt, May 2017),
Water (Malta, April 2017), Energy (Italy, December 2016) Employment and
Labour (Jordan, September 2016), Regional Cooperation and Planning (Jordan,
June 2016), Blue Economy (Belgium, November 2015) Digital Economy (Belgium,
September 2014), Environment and Climate Change (Greece, May 2014),
Industrial Cooperation, (Belgium, February 2014) Energy (Belgium, December
2013), and Transport (Belgium, November 2013), as well as two Foreign
Minister Conferences (Spain January 2017 and Spain November 2015). [2]

The UfM aims to reach its priorities through projects such as "Empowering
women and youth in the Mediterranean", "Promoting job creation and inclusive
growth" and "Enhancing the Role of Women and Youth in Preventing Violent
Extremism." [3]

There is not the slightest allusion in the yearly report, nor in the 2017
Roadmap for Action, to the fact that in most Muslim countries, sharia law
influences the legal code -- especially regarding personal status law, which
concerns marriage, divorce, inheritance and child custody -- and that gender
inequality may therefore be institutionalized and not something likely to
change, regardless of the number of UfM projects. Nor is there any allusion
to the role of Islamism in fostering "violent extremism". Instead, the
roadmap for action speaks of joining "regional and international efforts to
address socio-economic root causes of terrorism and extremism" and
"developing further projects and initiatives of high impact, with a special
focus on youth employability and women empowerment." [4]

According to the European Institute of the Mediterranean (IEMed):

"From 1995 to 2006, the EU allocated 16,000 million euros through MEDA
programmes for bilateral and regional cooperation, aimed at fostering both
socioeconomic projects (modernisation of the industry, promotion of the
private sector, reform of the health sector, development funds...) and
political and good governance reforms...

"The cooperation funds are channelled through the European Neighbourhood and
Partnership Instrument (ENPI), aimed at both the eastern European and
southern Mediterranean neighbourhood. The joint budget for both regions for
the period 2007-2013 amounts to 11,000 million euros...

The funds allocated to cooperation with the EU neighbouring countries (in
eastern Europe and the southern Mediterranean) for the period 2014-2020
amount to 15,000 million euros."

These figures do not include bilateral agreements between the UfM and EU
countries, such as the €6.5 million multi-annual financing agreement between
the UfM Secretariat and Sweden "to deepen and amplify UfM specific
cooperation initiatives and core activities promoting regional dialogue."

Given these large sums, it is remarkable that the UfM and its activities
enjoy little to no scrutiny in the European press. Especially as, in the
words of IEMed in its 2015 assessment of the 20th anniversary of the
Barcelona Process, "The scenario of concord set out for the Mediterranean in
the 1995 Barcelona Declaration has never become a reality".

Subsequent Islamic radicalization and terrorism and the years-long migrant
crisis constitute recent examples of the failure. IEMed's assessment
continues:

"The roadmap designed in the Catalan capital could not predict the
destabilising effects on the region of al-Qaeda on 11S and the subsequent
invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq; the political immobility and lack of
reforms and improvements in governance in many MPCs; the non-creation of the
free trade area in the Mediterranean scheduled for 2010; the lack of
south-south regional integration; the instability caused by the Arab Spring
since 2011, currently with two failed states, Syria and Libya; the migration
and refugee crises; or the emergence of Islamic State terrorism that is
ravaging Syria and Iran and has already shown its capacity to attack
Europe."

The UfM has itself conceded:

"UfM countries have among the highest unemployment rates in the world,
affecting mostly youth and women, which adds to many other pressing issues
such as social cohesion, migration or efforts to counter radicalization."
[5]

Despite this apparent evidence of the failure of the Barcelona Process and
the UfM, the latter nevertheless sees itself as having "entered a new phase,
building on the progress achieved so far... increasing and expanding
activities demonstrate that windows of opportunity exist to further develop
regional cooperation." [6]

The UfM, undeterred, barrels on with its goal to achieve:

"greater levels of integration and cooperation in the region through a
specific methodology that has yielded positive results in terms of political
dialogue and the implementation of region-wide initiatives in which young
people play a key role.

With more than 50 labelled projects and over 300 ministerial and expert fora
gathering 25,000 stakeholders since 2012, UfM activities illustrate the
strong belief that regional challenges call for regional solutions and that
there is no security without development."

It seems counterintuitive that nearly a quarter century of costly investment
by Europe in the southern UfM countries appears to have yielded few to no
positive results. Despite the UfM's own aforementioned assessment of
challenges having reached "unprecedented levels," the EU nevertheless
continues the Barcelona Process in the form of the UfM. It is also bizarre
that any substantive evaluation of the costs and benefits of the Barcelona
Process, and the UfM and its many projects is absent from most public
discourse, as the media apparently fail to report on the UfM and its
activities.
