Jean Monnet Chair
An Evolving EU Engaging a Changing Mediterranean Region
The Jean Monnet Chair at the Institute for European Studies, University of Malta, is held by Professor Roderick Pace who is also the Institute’s Director. The Jean Monnet Chair is one of the projects supported by the European Union’s Jean Monnet Programme.
The theme of the Jean Monnet Chair is ‘An evolving EU engaging a changing Mediterranean region’. The Chair is involved in leading research and discussion on the different aspects of change taking place in the Euro-Mediterranean region. Seven working teams, composed of academics, students and members of civil society, are being engaged in exploring the various issues related to the evolving situation in the Mediterranean region. Developments on both shores of the Mediterranean region interact and are often interrelated. The working teams are led by a resident academic from the Institute for European Studies.
The project focuses on a number of areas of Euro-Mediterranean cooperation, including state-building; democratic change and economic transition following the Arab Spring; the institutional dynamics of the region; and other pertinent horizontal issues, such as energy, climate change, and migration.
