Managing Crises at EU Med Borders
    Catania, 4-8 July 2016
The EUMedEA Crash Course "Managing Crises at EU Med Borders", held in Catania between 4-8 July 2016, was an advanced study and very intense training event which targeted all those PhD and M.A. students interested in EU external action and the management of crises at the Southern borders. Frontal lectures and discussions, therefore, focused on issues such as migration, security, regime change, unaccompanied minors. The Round  Table "The EU as a Crisis Manager: how to address Mediterranean crises" closed the event.
