The KAS Regional Program Political Dialogue South Mediterranean has launched the Mediterranean Advisory Group (MAG) as a series of dialogue rounds to contribute to the strategic debate on the ongoing processes in Europe’s Mediterranean neighborhood to help in better coping with the various changes and challenges. MAG is a network of experts and practitioners from both shores of the Mediterranean, which reviews and analyzes developments in the region connected to security, foreign policy and migration.
