Experts from Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestine and Tunisia analyse the consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic and the new possible political and socio-economic scenarios in the aftermath of the crisis in each country, as well as its impact on the relations between the EU and Southern Mediterranean countries.

This Spot On series identifies what sectors are likely to be most affected in each country, paying special attention to services, agriculture, industry, public administration and the financial sector. The authors also examine the national governments’ margin of manoeuvre in the light of the crisis and formulate some policy recommendations.

The series counts on contributions by several experts from the region and are coupled with a series of video-blogs (EuroMeSCo Decodes) where the authors present their findings in an easy-to-grasp, informational way to the wider public.

EuroMeSCo is a network of 104 think tanks and research institutes from 29 different Euro-Mediterranean countries coordinated by the European Institute of the Mediterranean (IEMed) and currently implementing the project “EuroMeSCo: Connecting the dots”, co-funded by the EU and the IEMed.
