PurposeThe objective of this paper is to determine the feasibility of binding, politically, economically and culturally, the Mediterranean Sea's southern and northern coasts. Design/methodology/approachThe paper evokes the gains and limitations of such an undertaking. FindingsThe paper finds that the initiative may be premature, but a formal relationship should strengthen ties between the new Europe and industrializing portions of North Africa and the western Middle East. Originality/valueStrong efforts by one European leader to rationalize the relationships of the European Union with nearly two-dozen Islamic States hold promise politically, economically and perhaps culturally.
