GMF is part of New-Med (“The New Mediterranean”), a research network of Mediterranean experts, established in June 2014. Its institutional partners are the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) and the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The Institute of International Affairs (IAI) is the non-governmental implementing partner, with the Compagnia di San Paolo Foundation of Turin and GMF as supporting institutions.
As a track II initiative, New-Med’s aim is to foster dialogue beyond diplomatic channels and use the expertise of researchers and academics, as well as practitioners, to promote a two-way dialogue from both the OSCE area and the MENA region on Mediterranean cooperation. The network is particularly interested in featuring perspectives from the South and will aim to move beyond the traditionally Euro-centric format of Mediterranean cooperation dialogues and initiatives. New-Med is also intended to feature emerging leaders and perspectives from the youth from all around the Mediterranean region and beyond.
The key themes that New-Med will be working on include the “Global Mediterranean” and how transatlantic, European, and MENA countries can work together to maintain peace and stability in this increasingly interdependent region. More about the activities of the New-Med network can be found on the OSCE webpage.
