MEDITERRANEAN WORKSHOP 2017 - Naples, 23-24 October
Globalization is producing deep and often dramatic changes all over the world. The Euro-Mediterranean area is now affected by econo mie crisis and social distress, with disparities that generate ten sions inside and among countries. However, as in other transition periods in the history of mankind, hard challenges come together with new opportunities, accessible by using innovative approaches.
To reverse the present trend, it is thus time for Euro-Mediterranean countries to develop new strategies consistent with the global nature of the challenges. Such strategies should achieve sustainable development, boost opportunities for job creation and increase competitiveness, by mitigating disparities and Leading to a new role at the world scale. Consolidating existing cooperation mechanisms and generating new initiatives by increasing coordination and concentra tion of objectives, resources and competences can be driving forces to promote sustainable and socially inclusive development of Mediterranean regions in the framework of the European Cohesion Policy. Dialogue, shared competences and agreed objectives should characterize this approach. In this regard, the Workshop will profit from the international and multicultural nature of research and education, aswellas from existing networks.
