CYCLE OF SEMINARS: EURO-MEDITERRANEAN AREA - SECURITY AND CONFLICT

Instability and conflict in North Africa and the Middle East call into question multiple premises on which Europe (and the world's) peace, security and stability are based. In this context, there is a set of phenomena that are progressively changing our social and political dynamics, such as human mobility and migration. With this, the Euro-Mediterranean Area has become a cemetery and a crossing point explored by organized crime. The second seminar of the Cycle “Euro-Mediterranean Area – Security and Conflict” analyses this issue.

Theme: "Organized Crime, Migration and Mobility in the Euro-Mediterranean Area"

Lecturers: Mr. João Paulo Ventura (Judiciary Police – National Counter-Terrorism Unit) 
and Prof. Miguel Santos Neves (OBSERVARE – UAL)

Moderator: Prof. Luís Moita (Director of the Department of International Relations of UAL)

Place: Universidade Autónoma de Lisboa – Auditorium 3

Date: March 1, 2017 - 6:30 p.m.

19jan seminario espaco euromediterranico  

CYCLE OF SEMINARS: EURO-MEDITERRANEAN REGION – SECURITY AND CONFLICT

The idea of a Euro-Mediterranean area as a region is still conceptually debatable, notwithstanding its extreme geopolitical and geo-strategic importance. This recognition has long assumed forms of cooperation and dependencies. However, two decades after the Barcelona Declaration, the contexts have changed and increased the strategic vulnerability of this area. The volatility on the southern flank of this area may call into question certain premises on which regional peace and stability are based. Therefore, it is imperative to analyze the causes and consequences of these ongoing changes.

Theme: "Dynamics of Political Power – the Post-Arab Springs"

Lecturers: Bruno Cardoso Reis, Ph.D. (National Defence Institute) and

Francesco Vacchiano, Ph.D. (Institute of Social Sciences – University of Lisbon)

Moderation: Felipe Pathé Duarte, Ph.D. (OBSERVARE)

Local: Universidade Autónoma de Lisboa – Room 28

Date: January 19th, 2017 – 6.30 pm
