The previous editions of the Euromed Police project have been instrumental in creating a basic collaborative environment between the EU, some of its Justice and Home Affairs agencies, and the countries that have partnered up within the Euromed project framework. Among the key achievements of Euromed Police IV, most certainly the identification of a strategic level forum for regional and EU cooperation as well as the creation of two networks (one for capacity building and the other one for analysis purposes) are without a doubt very important steps.
The work of the previous phases of Euromed Police (I – IV) established necessary contacts, trust and footing for a more operational phase to take place.
Countries covered: Neighbourhood South countries
The overall objective of the Euromed Police action, building on the achievements of the previous editions of the project, is to contribute to enhancing institutional capacity to protect EU neighbours’ citizens against transnational serious and organized crime.
