"The Manifesto of Mediterranean Civilisation is an instrument for dialogue, peace and stability," says Pittella

Today in the European Parliament, Gianni Pittella, president of the S&D Group, and Professor Giuseppe Papaleo, from the Institute of High Euro-Mediterranean Studies, signed the Mediterranean Manifesto, calling for greater dialogue and a more comprehensive approach to policy formation to bring peace, stability and prosperity to both sides of the Mediterranean.
 
The objective of the manifesto is to raise public awareness in order to find new ways of thinking about Euro-Mediterranean integration and dealing with the threat from violent and anti-democratic forces, facing the entire area (and beyond).
 
The aim of the initiative is to promote concrete spaces for dialogue and reflection throughout the Mediterranean, with the goal of stimulating a common understanding and establishing a climate of peace, respect and mutual understanding. As well as promoting cultural exchanges and mutual cooperation in the Mediterranean area.
 
The ceremony was also attended by S&D MEPs Victor Boştinaru and Knut Fleckenstein, both vice presidents of the S&D Group, and Antonio Panzeri chairman of the Maghreb delegation, who also signed the manifesto.
