For a long period in the past, Germany has politically rather neglected North Africa and large parts of the Southern Mediterranean. However, in the wake of the recent transformations in the Arab world, Germany is playing an increasingly independent and affirmative role as a political actor in this region. The new book of our Project Coordinater in Passau, Edmund Ratka, analyses German Foreign Policy towards the Southern Mediterranean (with the MedUnion, Tunisia/Egypt and Libya as case studies) and discusses its self-image, interests and strategies. Using a model of Europeanization and Foreign Policy Analysis, the author evaluates the interaction between national and European levels with regard to foreign policy making and implementation.
