The emergency caused by the COVID19 pandemic is bringing about changes in the lives of people and entire systems, the effects of which are not yet fully known or foreseeable. The illustrious guests will discuss the stability of the MENA area, which encompasses the countries of North Africa and the Middle East, addressing the issue of energy security, which is being questioned due to the fall in oil prices.

MEDITERRANEAN POLICY WORKSHOP (MPW) is an initiative born during the pandemic from an idea of the Institute of Mediterranean Studies of the National Research Council (CNR-ISMed). The Institute found the NATO Strategic Direction-South HUB - Joint Force Command Naples (NSD-S HUB - JFC Naples), the Atlantic Club of Naples and Limes Club Napoli enthusiastic to participate as partners in the first inaugural meeting of the cycle.  With a deep knowledge of the Mediterranean in its socio-economic, historical, cultural and political dynamics, ISMed with these workshops aims to promote dialogue between policy makers, academia, research and business, but above all it aims to provide policy makers with concrete support aimed at identifying sustainable solutions to overcome the crisis. Towards new Mediterranean policies aimed at growth and integration.
