The Euromed Young Researchers Forum is part of the Euromed young researcher’s lab. It is an initiative of the EuroMeSC: Connecting the dot’s project, co-funded by the European Union and the European Institute of the Mediterranean. The Euromed Young Researchers Lab aims to boost the research capacities of young experts across the Mediterranean, give visibility and recognition to their work, strengthen exchanges and stimulate research on issues of common interest.
During this year’s Forum, 24 participants from across the Mediterranean and its neighboring regions will meet in Mollina, Spain, to exchange with policy-makers, practitioners, and other young experts on key issues in the Euro-Mediterranean area and contribute to policy shaping in the region.
This year’s edition of the Forum will be about: Bridging the Gap in Euro-Mediterranean relations: Youth as drivers of Cohesion.
Participants will present their research proposals on how young people have perceived the war in Ukraine on both shores of the Mediterranean as well as the responses to the war; analyze misconceptions, the actors and platforms involved in spreading disinformation campaigns; and the existing policy frameworks and tools in place to combat disinformation and its potential impacts, amongst others.
This event is scheduled to take place in Mollina (Spain) in the framework of the University on Youth and Development, organized by the North-South Centre of the Council of Europe on “Building effective, accountable, and
inclusive institutions”, organized by the North-South Centre of the Council of Europe. In addition to participating in the sessions of the V Euromed Youth Forum, participants will also have the opportunity to share experiences and learn from other international youth organizations taking part in the UYD.
