Launched in February 2016, the fourth phase of Euromed Police aims at effectively increase citizen security across the Euro-Mediterranean area by strengthening cooperation between the so-called European Neighbourhood Instrument South Partner Countries, as well as with the EU Member States.

Yet, these efforts to strengthen strategic and operational cooperation within the region remains highly complex, due to variety of factors. Although the situation continues to be uncertain in some critical areas, interest in strengthening cooperation on common threats and objectives is persistently increasing. EU MS and ENI SPC have come to a common political understanding of the fact that citizen security is a critical foundation for economic and social development.

In the framework of Euromed Police, the partner countries have identified and endorsed the priority areas on which they will focus on to enhance strategic and operational exchange of information and build their capacities. These priority areas were endorsed in Malta, at the occasion of the 1st Euromed Police High Level Meeting in February 2017. They are composed of core priority areas – which includes terrorism, cybercrime, irregular migration supported by criminal networks and trafficking of human beings, firearms trafficking, and drug trafficking – and crosscutting subjects – such as document fraud, financial investigations, money laundering, border controls and criminal analysis.
