ABSTRACT: In 2010 and 2011, the European Union signed a series of Protocols with Tunisia,
Lebanon, Egypt and Jordan, and an Agreement with Morocco, concerning the settlement of trade
disputes that might arise in application of the Euro-Mediterranean Association Agreements signed
with these countries.
These Protocols provide for a specif‌i c, staged mechanism for the resolution of disputes. This paper
analyses that mechanism for the resolution of trade disputes and his role in the framework of the
Euro-Mediterranean area.
KEYWORDS: Euro-Mediterranean Association, trade dispute settlement mechanism, mediation,
arbitration.
