Europe and the Eastern Mediterranean crisis: Cooperation or conflict?

How can a resolution to the dispute be achieved?

Members event, Panel
14 April 2021 — 2:00PM TO 3:15PM

Maritime disputes and geopolitical power plays between Turkey and a group of countries including Greece, Cyprus, France and Egypt have unfolded in the Eastern Mediterranean, however, recently there has been a partial de-escalation as Turkey and Greece have initiated exploratory talks to address their ongoing issues.

In this discussion, panellists address how a resolution to the dispute can be achieved:

  • How can the current de-escalation be sustained?

  • How can energy resources foster mutually beneficial cooperation rather than conflict in the Eastern Mediterranean?

  • How can Europe play a constructive role in resolving the conflict?

  • What influence will the new Biden administration have in the region?

  • And what impact will a de-escalation in Libya have on the Eastern Mediterranean crisis?
