A region in flux, the Mediterranean of today – and tomorrow – faces an array of security challenges. Demographic shifts, evolving political and security contexts, economic uncertainty, and climate change have created massive migration flows and regional instability which have strained resources in southern Europe. These and other drivers of change have highlighted the increased importance of developing a transatlantic security strategy for the region.
 
Join us for an assessment of the range of possible futures for the Mediterranean, and a lively discussion about the challenges, but also significant potential, for the basin as a center of transatlantic and global affairs.
