From MED to EURO MENA: The Many Paths of an Expanded Dialogue
This chapter reflects on the experiences of the seven conferences of the Euro-Mediterranean Dialogue in Public Management (MED) and how it has further expanded its remit to become the Euro-MENA (Middle East and Northern African) dialogue. The chapter addresses three main issues. First, the central significance of the Mediterranean area for the European Group for Public Administration (EGPA). Second, the contribution of EGPA to the debate on the study and the practice of Public Administration in the Mediterranean area. Third, the role and place of EGPA in and for the EURO-MENA area in the future.
