1.  The idea of the project
Eurojar.org is the domain name of the website. Eurojar is an abbreviation of Europa Jaratuna (Europe our neighbor). This website is part of a multimedia communication project which has been carried out following a call for proposals launched by the European Commission in the region concerned by the “European Neighborhood Policy”. This region involves the South and East Mediterranean countries among many others.

2.  The goal of the project
The goal of the project is to “maximize the visibility of the European Neighborhood Policy” in the 8 concerned Arab countries: Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Palestinian Territories, Egypt, Tunisia, Morocco and Algeria.
