IPEMED st ands at the interface between corporations from North and South of the Mediterranean and the region’s cities, regions and States, European and Euro-Mediterranean bodies and institutions, and experts from North and South. IPEMED’s aim is to nurture a new approach to North-South relations and to formulate proposals that will benefit the populations of the Mediterranean countries in real and tangible ways.

Our task is an urgent one: we need to work on building complementarities between Europe and the South and East Mediterranean over the coming years if we want to give the Euro- Mediterranean region, and one day, the Euro-African region, the clout and respect they will need in a multi-polar 21st century. You do not foresee the future: the future is something you prepare, and build, together.
