The European Union and the Promotion of Democracy

Richard Youngs

Oxford University Press

In charting European Union democracy promotion policy in the Euro–Mediterranean Partnership as it evolved during the 1990s, this chapter finds evidence of a genuinely new approach towards political change in the Mediterranean. The chapter analyses European approaches towards political Islam and security in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. The analysis uncovers important ways in which EU measures were less than fully developed and argues that the EU failed fully to follow through the logic of its own change of approach.

Keywords:   democracy promotion, Euro–Mediterranean Partnership, European Union, Mediterranean, Middle East, North Africa, political Islam
