ABOUT THE PROGRAM:
The modules offered during this intensive short-term program provide participants with a plethora of insights and different perspectives on the current security landscape of the Eastern Mediterranean. Special emphasis will be placed, among others: 1) on the new security threats and challenges in the broader Mediterranean region; 2) on the strategies adopted by major powers and international organizations for managing migration in the region; 3) on the evolution of the long-standing conflict between Greece and Turkey and the prospects for cooperation in an era of uncertainty and transformation; and 4) on the “Geopolitics of Energy” in the Eastern Mediterranean and its role in becoming a catalyst for cooperation and conflict resolution. An innovative part of the Summer Academy will be the “Ambassadors Forum”, a roundtable discussion between the Ambassadors of key-states in the region on the prerequisites for promoting stability in the Eastern Mediterranean.
