Mediterranean Platform

The Mediterranean Platform is a research, dialogue, and educational programme at the School of Government, Luiss Guido Carli. It offers a space for collective reflection on the opportunities and challenges of the Mediterranean region and promotes informed policymaking and advocacy at the national and transnational levels.

The Platform seeks to nurture a deeper understanding of the region by offering insights into the multifaceted transformation of societies and polities and by addressing long-term trends and dynamics. It builds upon innovative, rigorous and policy-relevant field-based research and active collaborations with researchers, practitioners and policymakers from across the region.

Our key areas of interest include political, socio-economic and security transformations in the Mediterranean space; MENA geopolitics, regional security and diplomacy; the region’s political economy and mega-trends, in particular the governance of natural resources, energy transition and climate change. The Platform is also engaged in future studies and scenario-making for the broader Mediterranean.

Publications, Collaborators, Public events:

The Mediterranean Platform draws on the work of leading specialists and academic experts to organise public events and provide in-depth multidisciplinary analysis of socio-political, security and economic transformations in the Mediterranean and in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA).
