Our team joined the closing public conference of MEDRESET and MENARA Projects under Horizon2020 Research Programme – on March 6, 2019 in Brussels. The collaborative research projects unveiled their findings during the public conference entitled “The Middle East and the EU: New Realities, New Policies” at Egmont Palace. The event has included a key-note speech by the High Representative of the EU for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and Vice President of the EU Commission Federica Mogherini.
This conference aimed at fostering a debate among the Brussels-based expert and policy community on the present and the future of the Middle East and North Africa and in particular on the EU’s role towards this region. The agenda of the meeting has also included the presentation of the projects’s main results by the scientific consortium of MENARA and MEDRESET, among others experts from both consortia discussing where the Middle East is heading to.
