Florence Gaub (European Union Institute for Security Studies, Paris).
Chair: Eduard Soler i Lecha (CIDOB and IBEI).
Available in video:
The Middle East is a region notorious for disruptive events such as conflicts, coups and crises. Where is the region headed in the next decade? What developments are in store for it as the world heads towards climate change, digitalisation, and a growing world population? While foresight might not be able to predict all outcomes, it will help us understand better what the options are - and what needs to be done.
Lecture by Florence Gaub, deputy director at European Union Institute for Security Studies, Paris.
The speaker will be introduced by Eduard Soler i Lecha, senior research fellow at CIDOB and IBEI affiliated faculty member.
This event is part of the 2020-21 edition of the conference cycle Aula Mediterrània, which the IEMed co-organizes with different masters from Catalan universities, such as the IBEI's Master in International Relations, to which this conference corresponds. The sessions are characterised by the diversity of subjects and voices, as well as the importance of the events experienced by the region that are of interest not only to the academic world and experts but also the general public. The inter-university programme Aula Mediterrània aims to foster studies on the Mediterranean with as wide and interdisciplinary a perspective as possible. Started in 2014, it is the result of the collaboration between the IEMed and the academic world. Check all the conferences
