ZusammenfassungThis paper focuses on the Euro-Mediterranean Human Rights Network (EMHRN) that
tries to promote civil society co-operation and human rights within the Euro-
Mediterranean Partnership (EMP). To this end, it explores the EMHRN’s ‘actorness’
and role in Euro-Mediterranean transnational relations in three respects: its linkage to
the intergovernmental politics of the EMP, its participation in transnational civil society
activities, and its part in the local human rights activism of its members. Methodologically,
the empirical analysis relies primarily on document analysis and interviews and
narrows its focus down to Morocco for the last aspect. The network’s identity and activities
as an umbrella organisation for human rights are closely linked to the EMP. It pursues
a mix of strategies, including the lobbying and consultancy, awareness-raising
campaigns, service-provision to its members, and international networking in the context
of Euro-Mediterranean relations. It assumes various functions vis-à-vis European
institutions, national governments, its members, and other transnational actors, leaving
its nature ambiguous and potentially compromising the effectiveness of its different
strategies. Despite all these limitations, the EMHRN definitely contributes to ‘transnationalising’
Euro-Mediterranean (human rights) politics, bringing parts of civil society
closer to the EMP – and vice versa.
