The seminar aimed to assess the role and impact in the political and security fields of sub-regional actors and organisations in the four sea basins: Mediterranean, Baltic, Black and Caspian seas. Also, it evaluated whether the EU, as well as NATO and other international organisations reinforce security co-operation at the sub-regional level. While the EU has always been keen on promoting regional and sub-regional multilateralism, proposing itself as a sort of model of such kind of cooperation, its strategies and policies have not always been consistent with that aim.
