Prosecutors General from Europe and Mediterranean countries (Algeria, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestine, and Tunisia) attending the Second Euromed Forum agreed on the “General Rules for the Organisation of the Forum”, setting up the main objectives and principles of collaboration, communication and continuation of the Forum with the objective of improving international judicial cooperation. The agreement of the General Rules of cross-regional collaboration took place under the impetus of EU-funded EuroMed Justice.

The Forum allowed the Prosecutors General to share experience and best practice on issues related to cyberspace and judicial cooperation in criminal matters; personal data protection and cooperation with third countries; joint investigation teams; and countering terrorism and organised crime, particularly smuggling of migrants, trafficking in human beings, and drug trafficking in the Euro-Mediterranean region.

EuroMed Justice (2016-2018) is an EU-funded project which aims to contribute to the development of a Euro-Mediterranean area of cooperation in the field of justice and to the development of effective, efficient and democratic justice systems which protect and promote human rights.
