Series of lectures: Aula Mediterrània 2022-2023
The inter-university programme Aula Mediterrània aims to foster studies on the Mediterranean with an as wide and interdisciplinary perspective as possible. It is the result of the collaboration between the IEMed and the academic world, including IBEI.
In the academic year 2022-23, the programme celebrates its ninth edition. International experts from various professional backgrounds will address key issues of the Mediterranean and international agenda. For instance, the management of energy resources, the global governance of the environment, border management, sectarianism in the Middle East, the political situation of countries such as Sudan or Iran, or the growing Chinese influence in the Maghreb.
We strongly recommend our students to take part in this programme in order to broaden their knowledge in the MENA region. Check the programme
