Following the end of the Cold War, European Union followed a democracy promotion policy in its neighbourhood regions. The thesis aims to contribute to the external democratization literature by giving a detail analysis of the European Union's policy formation and instruments for democracy promotion in the Mediterranean region. More specifically, I look at the dynamics underlying democracy promotion policies of the EU and explain why the EU adopts certain policies and employ certain instruments for Mediterranean countries. As such, this thesis does not focus on the success or failure of democratization policies per se, but rather how an external democratizer, like the EU, produces principal policies and employ instruments for democracy promotion. Namely, this thesis tries to explain the evaluation of the EU's foreign policy towards the Mediterranean region and within this process, how the EU's policies are intensified towards a comprehensive democracy promotion strategy in the Mediterranean region.
