This edited volume collects the revised and updated versions of eight policy papers produced by outstanding young scholars and activists from the Middle East and North Africa. Their works, focused on topics such as climate change and environmental degradation, state-society relations, radicalization and the migrant and refugee crisis, were presented during an international conference held at the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation on 19 January 2017. The authors, coming from Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestine and Tunisia, were selected through a rigorous and highly competitive application process.

Led by the Istituto Affari Internazionali (IAI), the New-Med Research Network is supported by the OSCE Secretariat in Vienna, the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, the Compagnia di San Paolo of Turin and the German Marshall Fund of the United States.

The study does not represent the position of the OSCE, its participating States or the institutional partners of the New-Med Research Network and exclusively reflects the research and opinions of the authors.
