Series of lectures: Aula Mediterrània 2023-2024
Aula Mediterrània, the interuniversity programme promoted by the European Institute of the Mediterranean (IEMed) in collaboration with the academic world, including IBEI, will celebrate its tenth edition this year. Throughout these years, Aula Mediterrània has established itself as an academic meeting point and a reference for the study and understanding of the Mediterranean and the Arab region. With 23 lecturers from 17 European and Mediterranean universities, this series of lectures also reaffirms its commitment to enabling Euro-Mediterranean academic exchange.
The 2023-2024 edition consolidates the interdisciplinary approach, addressing a wide range of disciplines: international relations, political sciences, international law, communication sciences, modern and contemporary history, and postcolonial studies, among others. Moreover, the 23 sessions tackle crucial issues, such as diversity and religiosity in the modern era in the Mediterranean, as well as more contemporary topics such as the current political situation in Lebanon and Iraq, and conflicts and social, political and cultural realities that have emerged after the Arab revolts in 2011.
Particularly noteworthy this year are the sessions devoted to migrations, which are addressed from the diverse perspectives required by such a complex issue, ensuring that the programme is firmly committed to matters of social impact and open to a public made up of scholars, professionals and journalists interested in Mediterranean current affairs.
We strongly recommend our students to take part in this programme in order to broaden their knowledge in the MENA region. Check the programme
