The workshop aim to stimulate the discussion on different aspects of inequalities among and within Mediterranean countries. The discussion is intended to throw light on how to promote greater economic and political integration of the Med region. The term "inequality" would include political as well as socio-economic inequalities.

 

General Objectives

We intended "Inequalities in the Mediterranean" as a very general framework and the workshop is not conceived to be focused on specific economic issues. Our aim is rather to stimulate the discussion on different aspects of inequalities among and within Mediterranean countries. The depth and the extension of the current political crisis have changed the perspectives within which the Euro-Mediterranean integration policy was conceived and implemented. The workshop intends to provide the grounds for developing new patterns of analysis and addressing policy guidelines which will be able to respond to the dramatic challenges in front of the Mediterranean regions. In a fragile and conflicting environment, in which economic and political variables are strictly interrelated and reinforce each other, a valuable and comprehensive research program requires a multidisciplinary approach. As a matter of fact, only with different instruments of analysis is possible to depict in a general framework the structural determinants of economic backwardness and political instability: territorial and social imbalances, economic inequalities, market imperfections, weak institutions, poor governance, lack of efficient redistributive policies. Our workshop would like to analyse the different aspect of inequalities: the functioning of labour market, the governance as a challenge to managing inequalities, the income distribution, the role and participation of woman to economic and political life, the young migrants' educational achievement.
