Since 2012, the successive phases of the South Programme (I, II and III) 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 such as combating economic crime, violence against women, human trafficking and torture while the flexibility and demand-driven approach of the programme respond to the countries’ specific needs and requests for assistance.
