Even though originated as domestic growth strategy, the European Green Deal (EDG) requires international cooperation to fulfil its ambitious goals. As such, it will have profound implications on the Southern Mediterranean countries and it may catalize efforts towards a green transition of the region.
The paper The European Green Deal: Challenges and opportunities for the Southern Mediterranean published open access by Mediterranean Politics, explores this research questions and investigates the potential effects of the EGD on the countries of the EU Southern Neighbourhood, particularly in the areas of energy, agricultural and food systems, trade in raw materials, climate action, and circular economy.
The paper is the result of a cooperation between two researchers affiliated to BONEX, Serena Sandri and Nooh Alshyab, and their coauthors from Oxford University and the Royal Scientific Society, Hussam Hussein and Jacek Sagatowski.
While dealing with the WEFE Nexus, it is for sure important to keep socio-economic and political development into consideration.
