Migration and the situation in the Middle East, highlighted in the Mediterranean Yearbook 2019

15 November 2019 | Press release

More than 60 international collaborators address the main issues of the Euro-Mediterranean region in the IEMed Mediterranean Yearbook 2019, now available online.

The multiple crises affecting the European Union, the rise of nationalisms and migration are topics discussed in the Keys section of the IEMed Mediterranean Yearbook 2019, which has just been published and can be consulted online.

The yearbook also dedicates its Dossier to analyzing the emergence of new social movements linked to the possibilities offered by the digital age and the changes they generate in the Mediterranean.

The Panorama section offers a portrait of what the year has meant by regions (Europe, Maghreb, Middle East, Balkans and other international actors in the Mediterranean) and by sectors (security and politics; economy and territory; culture and society).

The Yearbook offers analysis and information through the articles of more than sixty international authors and data collected in its annexes, which include maps, graphs, tables and chronologies.
