The renowned Mediterranean complexities make difficult any sort of lasting regional interlinks and the development and sustainment of cooperation initiates. Actually, current context where good news are rare, is defined more by prevailing disputes and misunderstandings rather than by some successes in the domain of cooperation, seems to be still liable to some outside events and recriminations.As a result, in order to overcome some enduring problems and achieve effectiveness, new and innovative approaches have been sought.

Coherent with current thinking , basically result-oriented, processes are scrutinized under the perspective of metrics of success. In this context the customary Crisis Management processes are revised in terms of Crisis Solutions for a twofold reason.First, to underline the primacy of politics over the technicalities of management, second to stress that engagements are not open-ended but output-oriented in keeping with expected time-lines. In a nutshell pragmatism, underpinned by the optimism of the political will, seems now prevailing over enthusiasm, sometimes divorced by the realities of the context.The outstanding performance of the “5+5 Defense Initiative”, that reached the operational dimension in three year- long time span and decupled its size in 5 years, provides us with a startling example about the potentialities of a “democratical cooperation” process.

Some principles have been applied subsequently, in the Union Pour la Méditérranée “project of the projects”, launched last year in Paris on the 13th of July, with the objective to provide political answers, that previous IC undertakings (chiefly by the EU, NATO, OSCE) were unable to grant entirely. Drawing on the experience gathered on the ground, following are, in principle, some guidelines that represent a paradigm shift in the domain of the strategic function of cooperation:

1.set in place an “operational dialogue” on issues of common interest affecting partners’ daily needs\concerns,

2.spirit of the enterprise: among equals in a two ways street fashion; golden rule: consensus; development path: incremental and growth capacity;

3.big picture, but focus on limited objectives, that is to say “ concrete, simple, easygoing”,

4.initial goal is “to create a win-win situation for all the parties,

5.devise a proper methodology as a tool to achieve the “domain of doing”. “Do tanks” are needed rather than think tanks. A cooperation not followed by a practical dimension is bound to a sterile exercise;

6.try lead nation concept may help for the kick-off phase,

7.workshops and\seminars should provide for:

  • start networking.
  • common grounds and common operational procedures in order to minimize interoperability gaps,
  • setting a climate of trust and confidence,

5.undergo an operational testing through exercises, and set in place cycles of lessons learned \ lessons to be implemented,

6.set in place virtuous circles in order to spiral the process,

7.experience gathered should be fleshed out on working manuals,

8.rise the bar steadily, but remember: the trend of the learning curve and the peace of activities should allow the attendance of the whole community,

9.the practical dimension, instrumental to start the process, should be buttressed by an education dimension. Cross fertilization is paramount;

10.establish interlinks with wider formats, and work on complementarities;

11.the overarching objective is to provide the political masters with a package of capabilities at hand, to be exploited in real world operations.
