Five Years of MED

Since 2015, Rome MED Dialogues are 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. Its mission aims to rethink traditional approaches to the area by complementing analyses of current issues with new ideas and suggestions. The aspiration is to draft a new “positive agenda” when addressing shared challenges at both the regional and the international level.

Past editions have brought together more than 1,000 international leaders, including heads of state, ministers, top business leaders and decision-makers from over 70 countries worldwide, as well as 80 think tanks together with all the most important international organizations.

With the fifth edition approaching, make sure to check out previous editions’ numbers and achievements. Here’s a glance of what we have accomplished, so far.
