About this book

This book provides an in-depth analysis of EU-Tunisia negotiations during the last three decades to understand what ‘joint ownership’ means in Euro-Mediterranean relations. The principle of joint ownership often figures in the EU’s public discourse of the EU and other international actors. Yet, it has been scarcely conceptualised and there is little research on which factors determine its presence or lack thereof. The book contributes to its definition, highlighting its evolving nature and intersubjective dimension. The author further explains how bargaining rules, practices, and procedures affect joint ownership by constraining or empowering actors, and shaping their expectations about which options they perceive are possible during the negotiations. Negotiation analysis proves useful for showing how, and to what extent, the interests of both sides eventually feature in Euro-Mediterranean agreements and enables scholars to bring back third countries' agency and perceptions into the study of the EU's external relations.

Reviews

“The book valuably contributes to the study of the EU’s relations with the Southern Mediterranean countries, by systematically analysing both the enabling and constraining factors that underpin such relations. Through a thorough institutionalist analysis of the EU's negotiation patterns, Federica Zardo sheds light on what the concept of joint ownership means in practice in the case of EU-Tunisian relationships. A highly interesting read.” (Caterina Carta, Associate Professor, Université Laval, Canada)

“Vital both to our understanding of the EU’s foreign and security policies and the extremely important democratic experiment in Tunisia, this book presents an original contribution to new research on the Mediterranean. Taking its point of departure in the notion of joint ownership while examining the development of the power-negotiation nexus between the EU and Tunisia, the work provides convincing insights in an asymmetrical relationship.” (Peter Seeberg, Associate Professor, Center for Contemporary Middle East Studies, University of Southern Denmark, Denmark)

“Federica Zardo dives deep into the relations that Southern Mediterranean countries have established with the EU, assessing actors and institutions which have facilitated the partnership and investigating compelling factors. The original theoretical framework and the well-constructed empirical fieldwork make the book a relevant read for scholars specializing in Mediterranean politics and more generally interested in external EU relations, as well as for practitioners and NGO workers.” (Daniela Irrera, Associate Professor, University of Catania, Italy)
