North Africa, Colonialism and the EU, by Volkan Ipek

December 30, 2019

This book explains the postcolonial nationalism theory of Morocco focusing on the nation’s membership application to the European Economic Community (EEC) in 1987 through the initiatives of King Hassan II. The project examines why states, such as Morocco, that have been geographically beyond the classical European borders felt European in terms of self-identity. The author uses a comparative approach, studying Tunisia, Algeria, Malta, Cyprus, to postulate why these states have opted not to apply for EEC. This work brings a new approach to the Europe-Africa relations and revisits the concept of the European enlargement.
