EU-MENA Relations

The Institute acts as a connecting platform between North and South of the Mediterranean Sea by focusing on promoting and increasing contacts between Sweden and Europe one hand, and countries in the Middle East and North Africa on the other. The dialogues cover issues which are of importance for the political, economic, and social development of the MENA region or for the relationship between the countries of the region and the rest of the world, or which contribute to greater mutual understanding in the fields of culture and religion.
