The European Institute of the Mediterranean (IEMed) within the framework of the project “EuroMeSCo Connecting the dots” and the International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD) within the project “EuroMed Migration 5”, carried out this survey to reflect on migration partnerships between the EU and Southern Mediterranean countries in line with the EU’s Joint Communication on a Renewed Partnership with the Southern Neighbourhood and the New Pact on Migration and Asylum. It reflects the priorities and viewpoints of the nine European Neighbourhood Instrument Southern Partner Countries (ENI SPCs) thereby charting a path for an evidence-driven approach to partnership negotiations. The survey targeted respondents from Southern Mediterranean Countries, including policymakers, experts, and civil society representatives. The results of the survey contain analytical articles that also echo some specific results of the Survey, in the case of Lebanon there is a particular analysis written by the ILO Regional Office for the Arab States focused on partnerships in the context of forced displacement and support to host countries.
The aim of this event was to present the EMM5-EuroMeSCo Euromed Survey Results and discuss and analytical article based on the survey results.
The event took place on Tuesday, May 31 2022 from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm Beirut time.
The Fondazione Mediterraneo is a founding member of the EuroMeSCo network and supports and disseminates the main activities.

The Italy of enterprises and territories protagonists of today and tomorrow.  After the great success of the first edition of LET EXPO, ALIS continues its associative activity with a tour to discover Southern Italy!
Guido Grimaldi: "The presence of Ministers Lamorgese, Gelmini, Stefani, Bonetti e Di Maio, dei Sottosegretari Messina, Nesci and Mulè, Vice-President of the Chamber of Deputies Rosato and many distinguished guests is a further sign of great appreciation for the work done by the transport and logistics sector".
This is how ALIS President Guido Grimaldi comments on the first appointment of 'ALIS ON TOUR. L'Italia in movimento alla scoperta del Mezzogiorno" (Italy on the move to discover Southern Italy), which will see the Association play a leading role next 14 June in Naples, on 5 July in Manduria (Taranto) and, finally, on 2 August in Catania.
The day's proceedings were kicked off by an interview with the Minister of the Interior Luciana Lamorgese, who emphasised precisely the importance recognised for the sector, also in terms of security, considering "what has been done by the logistics cluster represented by ALIS during the lockdown and the help given to the system with the punctual transport of goods, thanks to which Italians have never suffered shortages of any goods. In this regard, the many funds that will be allocated to reducing the distances between North and South, such as those on the high-speed rail network, are very important, and I believe that the PNRR funds can be used precisely to reduce these distances: it is essential that we move forward along this line".

Thanks to the Campania Region, the manager Anita Florio and the officials Federico Lomolino and Carmine Oliva, it was possible to supplement the 2021 Braille Call for Proposals with additional unused resources.
Thanks to these resources, the Fondazione Mediterraneo, together with volunteers and collaborators, has created tactile plaques and reproductions in addition to the existing ones, enabling the most significant works to be enjoyed by the blind by means of transcoding them into Braille.
This is particularly important for the large works - such as "The Last Supper" (4.5 x 2.60 m) and the Great Mihrab (9 x 1.60 m) - for which it is now possible to "touch" them and enjoy all the details with tactile Braille relief reproductions.A special thanks to the companies "Handy System" of Rome, "EdilSantagata" of Caserta and "Stampa Gargiulo" of Naples for the quality of the work carried out with passion.
