MED Forum – Mediterranean Dialogues, promoted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and by the Italian Institute for International Political Studies (ISPI), took place in Rome from 10 to 12 December 2015.
The goal of the event was to pave the way for a new agenda for the Mediterranean so that the region ceases to be perceived solely as a synonym for crisis, danger and instability and can be seen once again as a theatre for opportunity. The Forum therefore concentrated on the current challenges and transformations taking place in the Mediterranean, which haves become the epicentre for international turmoil. The priority remains the defeat of Da'esh and of violent extremism, the launch of a political transition in Syria and the birth of a government of national accord in Libya. We must look beyond the current state of chaos and imagine a new regional order built through diplomacy, partnership, governance and co-development.
Participants included representatives of the Italian and foreign governments, international bodies and organisations, and the business and financial worlds. All sessions were open to the press.
