EMNES has published the new Policy Paper “Reshaping EU Policies Towards the EU-Africa Partnership in the ‘New Normal’ Era of the Post Covid-19 World” authored by H.E. Fathallah Sijilmassi and Hafsa EL Bekri. The paper presents the new parameters to take into consideration in order to reshape the relations between the EU and its Mediterranean and African neighbours. It highlights the importance of an increased South-South cooperation and it illustrates this through the example of Morocco’s strong involvement in the Continent.
