Grussendorf, Johan S. U. and Hoffmann, Friedhelm. (2010) Frieden, Wohlstand und Menschenrechte rund ums Mittelmeer" – Die Erklärung von Barcelona (1995) = Peace, prosperity, and human rights in the Mediterranean area - the Barcelona Declaration. Clio-Online / Themenportal Europäische Geschichte.
This essay undertakes a critique of the Barcelona process and its meagre outcome by analyzing its premises and contradictions on both sides of the envolved parties, the EU as well as the so-called Euro-Mediterranean Third Countries, as laid down in the Barcelona Declaration. It is argued that the inherent but concealed contradictions came to the fore in due time and were mainly responsible for the lack of implementation of the initially proclaimed noble aims.
