The Euromed Police III project is funded by the European Union (4 996 000 €) for the period 2011-2014. It aims at fostering cooperation on police issues on the one hand between the ENPI South countries and territories and EU countries and on the other hand between ENPI South partner countries and territories themselves. It contributes to the strengthening of rule of law and human rights in these countries. The project is implemented by a consortium led by CIVI.POL Conseil and composed by the “Direction de la Coopération Internationale” (DCI) of the French Ministry of Interior, the Bulgarian State Agency for National Security (DANS), TRANSTEC, FIIAPP, the "Institut für Verwaltungswissenschaften" (IFV) and Charles Kendall Consulting. The project is based in Paris within CIVIPOL’s premises.

to include internal affairs.
Partner countries : Algeria, Egypt, Israel, Jordan,Lebanon, Morocco, Palestine and Tunisia. Syria’s participation was suspended (in accordance with a decision of the Foreign Affairs Council on 23 May 2011) and Libya has not participated in project activities.
