The CMI participated in the Anna Lindh Forum to discuss socio-economic issues raised in the Euro-Mediterranean region. The Forum gathered around 1000 people including experts, policy makers and civil society actors. The CMI contributed to the strategic debates on April 5-6: Inger Andersen, Vice President of the World bank for the MENA region, intervened during the debate entitled "The Mediterranean in 2020: Society&Values", and Mats Karlsson, Director of the CMI, addressed the question: "What Opportunities for Youth, What Societies for Tomorrow?" The strategic debates were crucial for the Forum since they aim at stimulating new perspectives, promoting new avenues for dialogue at EuroMed level, as well as inspiring discussions held during the thematic workshops.
The CMI, in partnership with OCEMO, organized the workshop entitled "Social Cohesion in a Context of Crisis", which addressed employment and social protection issues. The fourth event in which the CMI participated was the "Combating Gender Stereotypes" workshop, where the World Bank report "Opening Doors: Gender Equality in the Middle East and North Africa" was introduced. Finally, as a follow-up to the publication of the 2012 Med Report "Towards green growth in Mediterranean countries", the CMI contributed to the session entitled "A Green Economy for a Sustainable Mediterranean".
