Med 2020 is the 6th edition of annual conferences held by the Italian Institute for International Political Studies (ISPI) – this year’s conference, held in Rome, focused on addressing challenges faced by younger generations across the Mediterranean region. The conference this year had 2.5 million online engagements.
At the Youth Forum, Sami Oussama Filali Naji, Founder & CTO of the Arab Research & Advocacy Bureau (ARAB), presented plans for an “Arab futures” analysis that aims to identify current challenges and their respective solutions for the Arab world.
A series of focus groups from participants from Morocco, Libya, Egypt and Palestine will inform the first part of the “Arab futures” series, which will be published in collaboration with the European Union Institute for Security Studies (EUISS) and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Italy (ESTERI).
Also at the Med 2020 Youth Forum were Marina Sereni, Vice-Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Italy, Dr Florence Gaub, Deputy Director of the European Union Institute for Security Studies, and Chiara Lovotti, Associate Research Fellow at the Italian Institute for International Political Studies.
