The Regional Program Political Dialogue South Mediterranean of the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung in cooperation with Stractegia brought together four distinguished Libya experts in an online seminar, which took place on July 20 in a closed setting with about 40 participants.

Civil-Military Relations in the Middle East and North Africa

During the latest popular protests the MENA region is witnessing, military apparatuses have been playing a decisive role. While in some countries, the military took the role of defending the political establishment, in other cases, the army played a crucial role in the change of power. In the face of the major re-implication of the military in the political developments of the MENA region, the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung Regional Program South Mediterranean in cooperation with the Carnegie Middle East Center, organized a conference on the “civil-military relations in the MENA region”.

Tunisian foreign policy in a new geopolitical situation

In early 2020, Tunisia started a two-year mandate, for the fourth time, as a non-permanent member of the Security Council (UNSC) until 2022. In addition to this election, Tunisia chaired the Arab League Summit last year and will chair the Francophonie Summit scheduled for December 2020. In view of Tunisia’s significant growing exposure on the international scene, the KAS Regional Program South Mediterranean held a conference to provide food for thought on the opportunities that Tunisia's election to the United Nations Security Council brings.

What is Europe’s Mandate in the MENA?

Franco-German Dialogue

In recent years, Europe is increasingly perceived as withdrawing from the debate on how the future course of the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) will develop. In view of new realities in the region, the Regional Program South Mediterranean of Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung (KAS) and the Institut Français des Relations Internationales (IFRI) jointly organized a Franco-German dialogue in order to identify and re-evaluate Europe's priorities, goals and instruments to strengthen its standing in its immediate neighborhood.
