The EU and its southern neighborhood: capacity to create institutional change

  • Eva-Maria Maggi
Part of the Politik und Gesellschaft des Nahen Ostens book series (PGNO)


The interplay of domestic actors and institutions sets the scene for institutional change, but exogenous factors also promote or prohibit the process. This chapter examines the EU’s capacity to trigger change through its neighborhood policies. While Morocco has relations with a number of different international institutions and actors, this chapter examines its distinguished cooperation with the EU. The singularity of this relationship is built around its economic driving force, overarching various policy fields and its long history reaching back to the founding treaties of the EU.
