Europe and the Middle East: A new era in institutional management of peace, security, and economic development

At a time when international institutions are facing multiple challenges in the domains of peace, security, and economic management, the Foundation for European Progressive Studies, the Fondation Jean Jaurès and the Karl-Renner-Institut are jointly organising a conference on 'Europe and the Middle East: A new era in institutional management of peace, security, and economic development’. The conference, which will be held on November 5th, at the Institute for National Security Studies (INSS) in Tel Aviv, Israel, is organised with the support of the MACRO Centre for Political Economics and INSS. 

The conference will bring together a number of top-level policy makers and policy experts from both the Middle East and Europe, focusing on 4 sets of highly significant issues:

  • A changing European Union: steering through the new political and economic landscape 
  • A more prosperous Middle East: fostering regional economic collaboration and development
  • A more confident European Union: managing security cooperation in a new geopolitical environment
  • A more stable Middle East: forming new regional security arrangements 

The conference will feature the participation of a number of high-level speakers, including: MK Isaac Herzog, Knesset Opposition Leader, Ambassador Dr. Emanuele Giaufret, Delegation of the European Union to Israel, Amb. Per Örnéus, Special Envoy for the Middle East Peace Process, Sweden, Alfred Gusenbauer, Former Chancellor of Austria, Sven-Eric Söder, Director General of the Folke Bernadotte Academy, and Alessandro Minuto-Rizzo, Former Deputy Secretary General of NATO.
