Since 2012, the successive phases of the South Programme (I, II,III and IV) have provided institutional support to beneficiaries of the Southern Mediterranean region (Algeria, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Tunisia and Palestine*), which have benefited from the added value of the Council of Europe’s standards, its independent monitoring mechanisms, and the support of independent experts and advisory opinion bodies. Regional actions address common interests and facilitate knowledge sharing and lessons learned at a collective level on a range of topics while the flexibility and demand-driven approach of the programme respond to the partners’ specific needs and requests for assistance.
