  • Objectives

    The event will be structured around the presentation of the CMI policy paper on "Youth, Actors for Change: Rethinking Mobility". Giulia Marchesini, Human Capital Senior Programme Manager at the CMI/UNOPS, will present and discuss the findings and recommendations of the paper with experts and representatives from Italian institutions and academia.


    The objective is to put forward a new narrative focusing on the idea that mobility - of knowledge, skills, talents, culture and individuals - represents a vector of empowerment for youth in the Mediterranean.


    The event will focus on solutions and concrete ways to promote and enhance mobility in the region, through partnerships, cooperation and a pluri-disciplinary approach. Such solutions are needed to foster youth integration at the socio-economic and political levels in order for them to fully contribute to the development of the Mediterranean region.



    The event will be introduced by Paolo Giordani, President of the Istituto Diplomatico Internazionale, and Marco Ricceri, Secretary General of EURISPES.


    A discussion will follow the presentation of the CMI policy paper on "Youth, Actors for Change: Rethinking Mobility". The session will be introduced by Michela Zanarella, President of the Rete Italiana per il Dialogo Euro-mediterraneo (RIDE-APS), and debaters will include Costanza Pera, Member of the CMI Scientific Committee, Georgios Mitrakos, Director General of the International Center for Black Sea Studies (ICBSS), Salvatore Capasso, Director of the Institute for studies on the Mediterranean (ISMed) and Francesca Maria Corrao, Full Professor of Arab Culture at the Department of Political Sciences of the Luiss University of Rome.


    Concluding remarks will be made by Amb. Roberto Ridolfi, President of the NGO Link 2007 Network and the Hon. Gennaro Migliore, President of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Mediterranean (PAM).
