The Euro-Mediterranean Economists Association strives to explore and understand the socio-economic and political challenges facing the Mediterranean region amidst the global geopolitical uncertainties, economic and financial crises and protracted conflicts. Our aim is to bring to the research and policy communities on both shores of the Mediterranean sound analyses and policy answers to address the most pressing political, economic, financial, social and environmental issues, such as curbing chronic unemployment and especially for the youth, improving living standards, addressing inequality, ending all forms of discrimination and conserving the natural habitat.

The following areas of study that are highly relevant for the socio-economic development of the region will be covered:

  • Geopolitics, governance and institutions
  • Demography, ageing, migration, health and gender issues
  • Human capital, employment, youth, social protection, inequality and migration
  • Science, technology and innovation
  • Energy and climate change mitigation
  • Sustainable development, management of resources and adaptation to global warming
  • Economic development and regional integration
  • Financial services and capital markets
  • Scenario building and impact assessment
  • Scenarios for regional integration and cooperation with external actors such as the EU and the Gulf Cooperation Council countries
