10th edition: Civil society and social movements in the Euro-Mediterranean region
The European Institute of the Mediterranean (IEMed) has carried out nine EuroMed Surveys of actors and experts, which is a project in line with our role as a public diplomacy and research institution dedicated to Euro-Mediterranean relations, proposing and disseminating policy options on contributing to the building of a Mediterranean area of peace and stability, of shared prosperity and dialogue between cultures.
To assess perceptions on progress, achievements and shortcomings of Euro-Mediterranean relations. To create and develop an instrument for analysis and mobilisation of actors, experts and policy-makers around concrete Euro-Mediterranean issues. To identify the major Mediterranean trends with a forward-looking approach, and thereby contribute to the elaboration of Euro-Mediterranean policies.
The Survey focuses on perceptions of experts who are directly involved in the Euro-Mediterranean relations. The representative sample comes out of a universe of 6100 experts, actors and policy-makers from the 43 Euro-Mediterranean countries (members of the Union for the Mediterranean). Researchers, journalists, government officials, NGO activists, business people, officials from EU and international organisations. It is gender and geographical balanced.
