In this context, the debate will address challenges and opportunities to make the functioning of regional networks and the regional activities of civil society in the Mediterranean region possible, assessing the internal and external factors that impact on citizens’ groups and organizations, such as the access to funding, external pressures or the security rules.

This event will gather participants from different backgrounds like civil society activists, researchers and journalists from euro-Mediterranean countries to find out about institutional stability of citizens’ entities and initiatives, as well as the capacity to combine online and offline work after the pandemic has exacerbated the difficulties to operate effectively in the region. In addition to that, participants will have the opportunity to address their questions and remarks to the speakers by writing in the chat form.
