First MedReset Policy lecture by Professor Tobias Schumacher, from the College of Europe – Natolin Campus, which focuses on the main themes of MedReset WP1:
The WP1 (EU Construction of the Mediterranean), MEDRESET identified the EU construction of the Mediterranean and its own role understanding in this process. By observing its discourses and policies in the region, it critically examined the dominant EU framing of the Mediterranean and how this has informed its approach and translated into practices in three historical stages: the 1970s to 1990, the 1990s to the early 2000s, and the mid-2000s to today. In other words, this phase looked at how the EU has perceived the Mediterranean and how it has sought to ‘talk’ and ‘practice’ the Mediterranean into being.
