Summary/Abstract: This paper approaches what may be regarded as two ‘dimensions’ of the EU security and cooperation: the Northern and the Southern. The Northern Dimension is highly institutionalized and it developed a model of partnership and multi-level governance which inspired the European Neighbourhood Policy. At the same time, the process in the EuroMediterranean region has been much slower, due to the deeper divisions between the European coastal states and the African or Asian coastal states. The aim of the paper is not to provide a comprehensive analysis of the ENP. It emphasizes the ‘foundational’ moment of 2003 for the new European neighbourhood policy, noticing that much of the challenges and dilemmas have remained intact and still need to be addressed by the EU and its neighbours in their quest for security and identity.
