The Trans European Policy Studies Association (TEPSA) will be organising its Pre-Presidency Conference in Malta at the University of Malta Valletta Campus on Thursday 10 and Friday 11 November 2016. This event is hosted by the Institute for European Studies of the University of Malta.
Deputy Prime Minister Mr Louis Grech will deliver the inaugural speech, while Minister Carmelo Abela and Parliamentary Secretary Ian Borg will also be addressing the Conference. Three Maltese MEPs are participating, namely Dr Roberta Metsola, Mrs Marlene Mizzi and Dr Alfred Sant. TEPSA will present its Presidency recommendations to Deputy Prime Minister Mr Louis Grech.
Three discussion panels are planned: one on economic and political dimensions of the Mediterranean Region, another on migration, and the last on BREXIT. Each will be followed by a discussion session.
Participants include around 44 representatives from research institutes from all over the EU and a significant number of places have been reserved for Maltese participants. These will be allocated on a first come basis.
