Challenges and prospects of Euro-Arab relations

The social, political and economic dynamics on both shores of the Mediterranean are closely linked. The uprisings in some parts of the Arab world have had, and will continue to have far reaching consequences for the MENA region, and for its economic and political relations with Europe. In light of this, the panel is guided by the question: What are the challenges and prospects of the political, economic and social relations between Europe and the MENA-states?
