MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: In light of the unprecedented developments in the financial sectors of developed economies in the years 2008-2009 and in view of the current political Arab upheaval, this paper reviews the pros and cons of financial integration of the South-Mediterranean region. Our analyses includes Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Palestine, Jordan, Lebanon and Syria. It focuses on financial integration indicators, as well as financial stability, and compares the South-Mediterranean region with other regions worldwide.
