Realizing Youth Potential in the Mediterranean: Unlocking Opportunities, Overcoming Challenges

In May 2018, the Istituto Affari Internazionali (IAI) and the OSCE Secretariat in Vienna, in cooperation with the German Marshall Fund of the United States, the Compagnia di San Paolo International Affairs Programme and the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, organized a New-Med conference entitled “Youth Potential in the Mediterranean. Unlocking Opportunities, Overcoming Challenges”. The conference, hosted at the Italian Foreign Ministry, was structured in four sessions, each of them clustering macro-issues related to the MENA region: (1) conflict dynamics and stability; (2) energy trends; (3) civic activism; (4) economic implications and unemployment. Following a strict selection process, eight young professionals from the MENA region were invited to present their ideas on these topics.
