Twelfth Mediterranean Research Meeting 2011


The Twelfth Mediterranean Research Meeting will take place in Montecatini Terme (Italy) on 6 - 9 April 2011.

Goals of the MRM

Reaching its Twelfth Session, the Mediterranean Research Meeting:

  • is committed to foster theoretical and empirical research and dialogue among scholars from countries across the Mediterranean, and with Mediterranean issue concerns;
  • stresses its aim to reach as wide as possible coverage of all Mediterranean areas, with topics relating to the Middle East, North Africa, Southern and South-Eastern Europe, their mutual relationships and their relations with Europe;
  • focuses attention on legal, historical, economic and socio-political issues;
  • aims to enable  junior scholars to meet more senior scholars in an interactive environment, and to promote further research collaboration;
  • encourages the publication and dissemination of this research in edited volumes, thematic issues of learned journals, and Mediterranean Programme  RSCAS-EUI Working Papers.
