2° International Conference on “Euro-Mediterranean Security”
Since almost two decades, the Mediterranean area is going through a phase of intense geopolitical instability, that was accelerated in the past few years by the outbreak of the Arab uprisings in the Southern shore countries and by the economic crisis on the European side of the Mediterranean. This situation has progressively become chronic, featuring unpredictable and alarming trends – partly as a result of an international environment that struggles to find an equilibrium. Against this background, the workshop intends to explore and analyse the main factors that threaten the security of the area. The event has an international dimension and hosts experts coming from Eastern and Western Mediterranean countries. It promotes an exchange of views on the issues affecting the area with the aim to identify future stabilisation paths. Moreover, it encourages an open and multifaceted discussion thanks to the active participation of several academic and institutional figures.
