Despite tensions and conflicts, the Mediterranean can be considered an area of cooperation, where European states have long provided financial support, particularly in the Maghreb region. The special relationships that have developed are founded on a common history and colonial ties between both shores of the Mediterranean. In this context, Portugal has taken up a privileged position as a partner for the region, since relations with some European states remain strained due to old disputes and conflicts. However, since the 1990s, several initiatives have led to a strengthening of cooperation and significant development in the Maghreb countries. However, some black spots persist in their political, economic and social situations.
