VI EUROMED YOUNG RESEARCHERS FORUM
BRIDGING DIVIDES: EXPLORING YOUTH APPROACHES TO CONFLICT RESOLUTION IN THE CHANGING EURO-MEDITERRANEAN REGION
The evolving global landscape has significantly impacted conflicts and conflict resolution in the Euro-Mediterranean region. Shifting power dynamics, emerging conflicts, and influential actors have strained traditional alliances, leading to heightened competition for resources and influence. These conflicts now incorporate cyber warfare and disinformation campaigns, and technology plays a pivotal role in shaping new conflict resolution mechanisms, with external powers like China mediating and groundbreaking agreements emerging in places like Lebanon and Israel. Amid these shifts, the VI Euromed Young Researchers Forum seeks to explore novel conflicts and young people’s innovative contributions to conflict resolution, fostering interdisciplinary dialogue on peacebuilding in the Euro-Mediterranean region.
During this year’s Forum, 30 participants from across the Mediterranean and its neighbouring regions will meet in Madrid, Spain. The Euromed Young Researchers Forum is part of the Euromed Young Researchers Lab, an initiative that aims to boost the research capacities of young experts across the Mediterranean, give visibility and recognition to their work, strengthen exchanges and stimulate research on issues of common interest.
This event will be held back to back with the EuroMeSCo Annual Conference.
