The EMNES policy workshop at the Centre for European Policy Studies (CEPS), a ​think tank and ​forum for debate on EU affairs, ended after 5 days of ongoing sessions focusing on the policy roadmap of the Network. Lectures by external speakers offered an overview of the EU policy priorities, vis-vis the Med region. Among the speakers were: Rym Ayadi, EMNES Scientific Director and EMEA Founding President; Ingrid Schwaiger, DG NEAR; Fathallah Sijilmassi, Former Sec Gen, Union for the Mediterranean.

The lectures were combined with group activities that extrapolated policy insight from the research developed in EMNES. Every day EMNES researchers covered all policy areas and addressed 1 of the 4 steps of the programme:

  • EMNES research inputs: Presentation of selected research contributions focusing on the policy issue
  • Identification of the policy challenges and options
  • Assessment of the policy options: feasibility, past experience, stakeholder, time horizon
  • Policy consistency and sustainability: moving towards the BTS (Blue Transition Scenario)
