The MWC Concept
Geopolitical and security developments across the Mediterranean have been severely affecting regional countries at the political, economic and social levels, oftentimes with global reverberations, as we recently witnessed with the irregular migration crisis. Ongoing regional conflicts such as the Syrian conflagration, Israeli-Palestinian tensions and border disputes are now complemented by asymmetrical threats such as radicalization and the rise of the extreme right. A growing degree of instability, therefore, raises the necessity for a more systematic appraisal of the nature and potential solutions to the multitude of security challenges faced across the Mediterranean basin. The MWC team, a diverse group of academics and regional experts, aspires to engage stakeholders and students in an academic and policy-oriented dialogue, with a view towards better understanding and tackling contemporary security challenges faced by governments and societies with the Mediterranean and beyond.
