Euro-Med Studies

Euro-Med Studies at MESC includes a number of aspects, from EU supported activities such as a public lecture seriesworkshops and student conferences to associated publications, events and courses.

In November 2018, Professor Mason gave a lecture at the Faculty of Economics and Political Science at Cairo University titled: “Reformulating UK – European Relations after Brexit: Implications for the MENA Region.”

In spring 2019, Professor Mason launched a new course Mediterranean Politics which introduces postgraduate students to the history, institutions and foreign policy frameworks of the EU and specific issues raised by contemporary EU interactions in the Southern Neighborhood. It specifically assesses various EU foreign policy initiatives, such as the European Neighborhood Policy (ENP), and the impact of relatively recent developments such as the Arab uprisings, refugee crisis, rise of populism and Brexit.
