Towards more Social Justice and Inclusiveness in the Mediterranean

Welcome

Labelled as “Towards more social justice and inclusiveness in the Mediterranean”, this year’s EuroMeSCo Annual Conference takes the form of four in-person country events in Morocco, Jordan, Tunisia and Egypt, and a closing event taking place in Brussels. 

These events offer a platform for further discussions on the implementation of the New Agenda for the Mediterranean focusing on the theme of Social Justice and Inclusiveness and will involve mixed groups of representatives from think tanks, academic institutions, civil society organisations, and business community representatives, as well as EU and government officials. 

Within the framework of the project EuroMeSCo: Connecting the Dots, co-funded by the European Union and the European Institute of the Mediterranean (IEMed), these country events are organised in collaboration with some of the partners of its Consortium.
