Abstract:
25 years after the Barcelona Process has been inaugurated, the Mediterranean space has changed decisively. Globally, it is now situated in a multiplex world where it represents a critical juncture between the “Global South” and the “Global North”. Regionally, human security has deteriorated as a result of new geopolitical ruptures, conflicts, and a migration crisis. Locally, it is witnessing new politics of contestation on all of its shores, may that be the decade-long Arab uprisings, or new social movements but also the rise of ethnocentric populism in Europe. As the Mediterranean finds itself at a critical juncture, this webinar asks – or asserts – why the Global North and the Global South do not meet in the Mediterranean.
