MENA 2030: Scenarios for Security and Defense Cooperation

Mediterranean Advisory Group

The Mediterranean Advisory Group of the KAS Regional Program South Mediterranean met in Cadenabbia, Italy, at the banks of Lake Como for a strategic foresight exercise on the prospects for multilateralism concerning security and defense cooperation in the broader Middle East and North Africa region.

On 28-30 March 2019, the group of experts from Europe, the US and the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region came together for the scenario workshop "Is Mediterranean Multilateralism Dead? A Strategic Foresight Exercise" facilitated by the Bureau für Zeitgeschehen. Participants took stock with regards to the current situation and identified future trends, threats, and signals of change that might have an influence on security in the region until 2030. The subsequent scenario policy paper will be shared on our website.
