On more year, the Euro-Arab Foundation supported the FIMAM project and participated in its XXV Forum, which took place on the 15th, 16th and 17th November 2023 at the headquarters of the European Institute of the Mediterranean – IEMed (Barcelona). FUNDEA’s researcher Lucía García del Moral presented the project STAND-UP.
As in previous editions, the 25th FIMAM meeting brought together national and international researchers to discuss contemporary issues related to studies on the Arab and Muslim world. The Forum, created in 1995, was set up as an informal and long-lasting space aimed at fostering contact between researchers in this field and the exchange of knowledge and information.
FIMAM was inaugurated by Senén Florensa, Executive President of IEMed; Lucía García del Moral Martín, member of the FIMAM Board; Mª Inmaculada Ramos Tapia, Executive Secretary of the Euro-Arab Foundation, and Olivia Orozco, Casa Árabe’s Training and Economics Coordinator. The inaugural session hosted an institutional round table with the presence of FIMAM’s main collaborating institutions: IEMed, Casa Árabe, the Euro-Arab Foundation for Higher Studies and the Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation (AECID).
The inaugural conference ‘Euro-Mediterranean relations in the context of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict’, by Anna Khakee, Professor of International Relations at the University of Malta took place in the framework of International Mediterranean Day.
