The project specificity comes from its organisers who represent civil society network from both sides of the Mediterranean. The consortium is formed by the following partners: the Arab NGO Network for Development (ANND), the Arab Trade Union Confederation (ATUC), the EuroMed France Network, the EuroMed Rights Network, the Alternatives Forum Morocco (FMAS), and SOLIDAR.

Designed and implemented by and for civil society, the project is conceived as an inclusive and participatory bottom-up process. Each year, within the annual cycle of activities, partners meet to debate and discuss about five key themes for the EU and regional countries relationship, namely governance and the rule of law, security and fighting against violence, migrations, economic and social dialogue, and social and climate justice. The outcomes of these discussions will be included in the structured political dialogues with the European Union in a Forum on 26th-and 27th November 2019 in Brussels.
