The 3rd Forum MED – Mediterranean Dialogues, promoted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and by ISPI (Institute for International Political Studies), will be held from 30 November to 2 December 2017, at Rome’s Grand Hotel Parco dei Principi.
The attendance to the event by numerous Italian and foreign leaders, including Presidents, Prime Ministers, ministers and people from the world of finance and business, as well as representatives of institutions and international organisations and scholars and experts from approximately 56 Countries, bears witness to the amount of international support received by this project.
The Conference will be entirely open to the press. It is divided in three days (see the attached programme), with 25 sessions structured around 4 Pillars (Shared Prosperity; Shared Security; Migration; Media; Culture & Society).
The key topics of the three-day conference – which aims to build a positive agenda to restore the centrality of the region in a continuously changing global scenario – are: the new equilibria in the area; common security strategies; combating terrorism after taking back Raqqa and Mosul; new strategies to manage migration flows; energy; international trade in the area. Special focus will also be dedicated to several key Countries in the region, including Saudi Arabia, Iran, Qatar, Egypt, Iraq and Libya and to the vision that big powers such as Russia, United States, China and India have of the area.
