Pre–MED Forums: A Hub for Debate among Leading Experts

The 3rd edition of MED will be preceded by thematic Forums scheduled right before the official opening (afternoon of November 30th). These high–level discussions among leading experts will focus on effective strategies to foster women’s empowerment, strengthen the role of the media and think tanks, and explore viable options to enhance development opportunities. These pre–MED meetings will also include a Youth Forum – co–organized by ISPI, the European University Institute (EUI) and Al Sharq Forum – which aims at building a network of about 40 “MED young leaders”, coming from different countries and backgrounds, that will establish a basis for future meetings and initiatives.
