Mediterranean Programme

The Mediterranean is Europe’s frontline to Africa and the Middle East, but it remains a weakly connected, untapped region. There are long-standing and emerging conflicts, substantial political risks, as well as significant potential for development and cooperation.

ELIAMEP’s Mediterranean programme aims to provide understanding of the region, its political, economic and strategic development, and to tap on its unfulfilled potential using data and analysis. It also seeks to promote dialogue by bringing together experts, stakeholders and key policy- and decision-makers.

The Mediterranean Growth Initiative (MGI) is an open access source of analysis, an independent, private sector initiative that earns its funding from providing research and advisory services – as governance and transparency reporting may require.

The project is powered by Alma Economics.
