The european Union has long recognised and affirmed a concern for the stability and development of Algeria, Morocco and Tunisia. Since 1969, the EU maintained preferential economic policies towards these countries to foster their progress through de facto economic integration with Europe. The extent to which those policies have actually helped to enhance growth and development in the Maghreb is still a question of debate. This study reviews the Eu's policy towards the Maghreb from early 1970s to present, with particular emphasis on trade and financial questions. It assess the benefits the Maghreb countries derive from those policies and examines recent developments in their relations with the EU. It also addresses the opportunities and challenges stemming from the recent re-orientations of the EU's policies as world trade liberalisation accelerates.
