A short glimpse on the Southern Dimension of the European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP) is enough to understand that several contingencies beset the prospect of intra-regional cooperation in the Southern Mediterranean (SEM). Historically-determined challenges to cooperation prevail over the opportunities that exist, while the legacy of the Arab Spring and the emergence of ISIS, efficiently obscure any hopes for collaboration. The objective of this paper is to explore this issue.
