EuroMeSCo (the Euro-Mediterranean Study Commission) is the main network of research centres on politics and security in the Mediterranean. EuroMeSCo was set up in 1996 with the goal of fostering research, information and social relations among its members as well as acting as a confidence-building measure in the framework of the Barcelona process. EuroMeSCo comprises 106 institutes coming from 32 countries out of the 43 members of the Union for the Mediterranean.
In line with the objective to foster influential analysis on Euromediterranean politics and policies, EuroMeSCo is currently developing:
- A research programme that promotes analytical and policy-oriented projects with the participation of the network’s members and their experts.
- A series of conferences, seminars and workshops for the debate on politics and security in the Mediterranean.
- A wide range of publications aimed at promoting and disseminating the research activities of its members.
- A website and a newsletter to promote the exchange of the research activities of its members.
