You may now register and apply to receive scholarships for this summer course organized by Casa Árabe, the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM) and CITPax, to be held from September 4 to 6, 2019.

Directed by Professors Ana Isabel Planet and Carmen Rodríguez López of the UAM, the course will be taking place at the Casa Árabe headquarters in Madrid.

The Mediterranean is a region in which a great deal of the tension caused by recent economic crises and politics on a global scale can been seen. The tensions between democratization and authoritarian tendencies, migratory movements and refugees, and the quality of freedoms and opportunities permeate a region in constant motion. This course provides a complex overview from the vantage point of theories of democratization, global economic analyses, an assessment of the European Union’s position, the need for strong and constant information, and above, all, the role which all of this plays on the agendas of countries in the MENA region.  

The course, in which professors and experts who work on topics involving the Mediterranean and the contemporary Arab world will be participating, has been organized for both the morning and afternoon, and will consist of six presentations and three round table discussions, rounded off with one practicum.
