Midi de la Méditerranée – Europe and the Mediterranean: the winding path of the French project

En cooperation with the European Movement Belgium, the MEDEA Institute welcomed Professor Bichara Khader, Director of CERMAC (Center for Study and Research on the contemporary Arab world) in the new framework of the Midis de la Méditerranée.

Two weeks before the launch of the project of the Union for the Mediterranean in Paris, Bichara Khader has traced the course and the changes brought to the draft of Nicolas Sarkozy, from the speech in Toulon in February 2007 to the eve of his consecration. The conference was followed by a rich discussion with a qualified public composed mainly of diplomats and European officials.

The Midis de la Mediterranée consist of regular meetings of discussion, information and awareness on the news of the Euro-Mediterranean cooperation and similar topics.
