November 2, 2022
On 19-20 October, EuroMeSCo held the fourth country event of the Annual Conference in Cairo, Egypt. Labelled as “Towards more social justice and inclusiveness in the Mediterranean – Egypt Country Event”, it provided a platform for researchers, civil society, international organisation and EU representatives for further discussion on the implementation of the New Agenda for the Mediterranean, focusing on the theme of Social Justice and Inclusiveness.
The first plenary session focused on the strategic topic of social protection programmes as a key pillar of inclusion. It looked into social justice for the most vulnerable groups.
A second plenary session offered insights on sustainable environmental policies and stressed the need for an inclusive approach putting people at the centre.
The conference closed with a working session to present the two EuroMeSCo Papers: “Green Recovery and Balancing Between Paradoxes in Egypt: Towards fulfilling Social Justice & Food Security & Overcoming Socio- Economic and Environmental Challenges” and “The Hydrogen Economy as a Vector of Economic Growth, Social Inclusion and Climate-Sustainable Development in Egypt and the EU.”
