A seminar on water security and water diplomacy in the Middle East will be held on 24 October 2019 in East Jerusalem, organised by IPCRI and Arava Institute in the framework of the Euro-Mediterranean Study Commission (EuroMeSCo) ENI Project, co-funded by the European Commission and the IEMed.
The workshop will examine how water can become a source of cooperation in the region, instead of a source of conflict. During the workshop case studies of cooperation and cross border agreements will be presented. Furthermore, the risks and challenges of water-energy nexus will be analysed. Finally, the de-securitization of water will be studied as a crucial step toward building a solid water diplomacy.
Founded in 1996, EuroMeSCo (the Euro-Mediterranean Study Commission) is the main network of research centres on politics and security in the Mediterranean, striving at building a community of research institutes and think tanks committed to strengthening Euro-Mediterranean relations.
