Rome MED - MEDITERRANEAN DIALOGUES is the annual high-level initiative promoted by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and ISPI (Italian Institute for International Political Studies) in Rome. The event aims at drafting a “positive agenda” for the Mediterranean by stimulating debate and promoting new ideas, rethinking traditional approaches and addressing shared challenges at both the regional and the international level.
The 3rd edition of ROME MED Mediterranean Dialogues was preceded by meetings for selected audiences: 10 Towards MED events in 5 cities from June to December 2017, and 10 Pre-MED meetings in Rome just before ROME MED. They were intended to address some of the most pressing and topical challenges to the Mediterranean region by bringing together institutional actors, experts, civil servants, and top representatives of the international business community and the media. Participants were offered the opportunity to discuss viable options to foster dialogue and enhance cooperation in a context of equitable and sustainable growth, address key topics such as business, energy, religion and sport and discuss the role of women, youth, think tanks, policy planners and the media.
All this contributed to turn Rome into a global hub for high-level dialogues drafting a positive agenda for the Mediterranean.
