Navigating Headwinds: The Future of EU-MENA relations


The war in Ukraine has affected the EU’s ties with the MENA countries, in a year characterized by the outbreak of new political and socio-economic crises but also by the emergence of renewed opportunities for cooperation and partnership. This event provides expert analyses and projections on the future of EU-MENA relations in times of global instability, economic uncertainties and the ongoing balancing of regional equilibriums, as well as on the challenges that lie ahead for the EU role in the region.
