Mediterranean Dimension of the OSCE – Youth and Security

Rikli Balance Hotel, Bled

Powered by the Embassy of the Italian Republic in Ljubljana. 

The round table event will be held in the light of the Italian OSCE Chairmanship and its commitment to working under the motto of “Dialogue, Ownership, Responsibility” to build a “genuine partnership” of Mediterranean countries. Partnership will be achieved through enhanced political dialogue, more concrete collaboration on security issues and the promotion of a holistic approach to protecting human rights and fundamental freedoms, as well as investment in education and culture, whereby more attention will be devoted to women and young people.

The panel will address the role of youth in resolving interconnected security issues in the Euro-Mediterranean region, such as radicalisation, climate change, migration, gender equality, freedom of media, etc. The event is also intended to shed more light on the role of youth, who are often left out of official debates and resolutions, while their voice is often neither heard nor included in the resolving of current issues in the region. The debate should be broadened by forging new links between different generations and sectors in the Euro-Mediterranean region.
