EURO-MEDITERRANEAN REGIONAL AND LOCAL ASSEMBLY

Recommendations for 2019

Adopted at the 10th ARLEM Plenary session on 27 February 2019 in Seville, Spain with the intervention of ACM Foundation

Political and economic stabilisation in the Mediterranean region is a key priority for the Union for the Mediterranean, the European Union and the Euro-Mediterranean Regional and Local Assembly (ARLEM). Political challenges include ensuring effective democratic governance, developing the rule of law and ensuring respect for human rights. In the perspective of the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sustainable Development Goals which lie at its core, the active commitment and the concrete contributions of regions and cities are needed to end poverty, protect the planet from degradation, ensure prosperous and fulfilling lives and foster peaceful, just and inclusive societies.

Bringing together local and regional authorities (LRAs) from the three shores of the Mediterranean in a joint assembly, ARLEM’s role is to promote a multilevel approach in the European neighbourhood policy (ENP) and the territorialisation of the Euro-Mediterranean sectoral policies, bringing them closer to the people, and providing support for decentralisation, stressing the link between political decentralisation and territorial development.

The Union for the Mediterranean (UfM) can support the cooperation between the EU and its southern neighbouring partners. Furthermore, the UfM has proved to be a valuable forum for political and economic discussion, providing a framework for cooperation on issues of common interest in the region. ARLEM can support the cooperation between the EU and its southern neighbouring partners on a local and regional level.

ARLEM RECOMMENDATIONS FOR 2019

Migration

1. ARLEM maintains that international migration, if properly managed, can contribute to the socioeconomic development and recommends closer coordination between different levels of governance (local, national and international), including civil society organisations. As ARLEM countries on the three shores of the Mediterranean are simultaneously, to different degrees, countries of origin, transit and destination, their local authorities shall be helped in managing both imminent emergencies and medium- to long term integration. Local and regional authorities aim to ensure overall well-being in their territories through inclusive public policies directed towards all inhabitants, especially the most vulnerable including migrants.

2. ARLEM recommends that LRAs are given a greater say when immigration, asylum and integration policies are drawn up, and that LRAs in the Euromed region develop networks and instruments for cooperation and sharing best practices on various aspects of migration management (integration, social inclusion, employment, refugee protection, prevention of irregular migration, voluntary return programmes, etc.) and have direct access to funds.

3. The importance of the policies aimed at “circular migration” should be better underlined. In addition, effective and sustainable return policies, which fully respect the rights of migrants and destination countries, should be promoted.

Political future and better governance

4. Following the adoption of the report on “governance and transparency in the Mediterranean region”1 ARLEM calls for more decentralisation in the region because it can address the issue of large-scale distrust in the government. Transparency is easier to achieve at a local level, close to the citizens, and projects at this level are more visible for the local community. With local level empowerment, citizens can become involved in the deliberative processes, while public officials can be held accountable for the end results and benefits of their actions.

5. For local authorities to be able to make a meaningful difference, local budgets should be increased, encouraging the development of fiscal collection capacity from investments and development projects, and asserting ownership over the quality of goods and services provided.

6. ARLEM stresses the importance of territorial development and capacity building of local authorities, with the “Nicosia Initiative” as an example of decentralised cooperation building up partnership with a bottom-up approach.

Sustainable economic development

7. As stated in the report on “youth entrepreneurship in the Mediterranean”2, job creation is a pressing priority in the Euro-Mediterranean region. In North Africa for instance, youth unemployment reached almost 30% in 2017, more than double the world average. ARLEM calls on intergovernmental organisations, in particular the EU, the UfM and the UN to recognise youth entrepreneurship as a key factor in economic development in the Mediterranean region.

8. With the ARLEM Award: Young local entrepreneurship in the Mediterranean, the assembly contributes to showcase a successful example of young entrepreneurship in the Mediterranean region as an inspiration to others, demonstrate the positive impact that local and regional authorities in Mediterranean partner countries can have on the entrepreneurial ecosystem and highlight how young entrepreneurs in Mediterranean partner countries actively take the future in their hands and create jobs for local economic development, thus establishing a positive narrative.

9. ARLEM calls on the Mediterranean region’s central governments to involve local authorities more in development of business friendly strategies and to develop smart specialisation strategies to help create synergies in key areas for local and regional development.

10. ARLEM recommends promoting the role and participation of women in the labour market and supporting legislative reforms on female entrepreneurship development. A particular attention should be paid to social and family legislations.

11. Concerning the envisaged merger of several EU external action instruments into the proposed Neighbourhood, Development and International Cooperation Instrument (NDICI) in the EU’s next long-term budget period (MFF 2021-2027), ARLEM underlines that a long-term perspective and predictability have to be maintained in the EU cooperation with its Mediterranean partner countries, including at the sub-national level. In particular, the EU assistance to and cooperation with LRAs from Mediterranean partner countries must not suffer in financial or organisational way as a result of increased flexibility in allocation of financial and other resources between the various geographic and thematic programmes. To ensure this, ARLEM requests that a specific programme with an adequate budget directly allocated to projects for regional and local authorities be included under the thematic pillar of the instrument.

12. Increased economic integration must be pursued as an enormous lever to better harness the potential of the Mediterranean region. To this end, the further spread and development of useful tools such as cross-border cooperation programmes and the European Groupings of Territorial Cooperation would provide a positive perspective.

13. ARLEM recommends that cities and regions in the Mediterranean region further commit to enhanced action on climate, notably through the Global Covenant of Mayors, to which ARLEM expresses its full support.

14. ARLEM will continue to participate to the works of the UfM Regional Platform on Sustainable Urban Development.

The MCAF participated this March 18. in the drafting and launching in the European Parliament of the #Charta 2020, a Manifesto for an Europe based on solidarity.

The Charta 2020, a European project presented in the framework of Agora Europa, is a manifesto on European integration that enumerates 20 public goods essential to reshaping any future European political space. The representatives of our MCA circles of Beirut and Rome participated in the drafting of this manifesto.

Representatives from the Rome and Beirut circles of the Mediterranean Citizen’s Assembly Foundation (MCAF) already participated to a workshop at the European University Institute (EUI), in February 2019. They contributed to the drafting of the Charta 2020, together with a wide range of European citizens, journalists, academics, …

Charta 2020 is a European project, presented within the Agora Europe (https://agoraeupoliticalspace.wordpress.com/), aiming at building a European political space and defining 20 European public goods (or objects of political desire). This project has been initiated by Rui Tavares and Caterina Di Fazio.

During the workshop, at the EUI, the representatives of the MCAF circles particularly contributed to the section of the Charta 2020 dedicated to migrations. Within this framework, they provided a wide range of inputs including the values promoted by the Euro-Mediterranean Movement of Solidarity with Persons in Exile, in particular the importance of having a human rights-based approach, when it comes to migrations, based on the European pillars of dignity, solidarity and humanity. ACM Foundation and its ACM circles from m Palestine, Beirut, Thessaly, Cyprus and Rome are part of the Euro-Mediterranean Movement of Solidarity with Persons in Exile, launched by Amel Association International (www.amel.org) and Samusocial International (http://www.fundacionacm.org/en/2018/06/05/launching-of-the-euro-mediterranean-movement-of-solidarity-with-people-in-exile/).

As for the Charta 2020, the MCAF circles representatives are currently contributing to its finalization. They will join the Charta’s launching event, in March 2019, in Brussels. The Charta 2020 will then be sent for signature to all the candidates for the European elections which will take place in May 2019.

The Charta 2020 and Agora Europe processes are key contributions in the development of a Euro-Mediterranean citizenship, which is one of the missions of MCAF. Within this framework, the participation of MCAF circles allows citizens to shape the future of the region and to engage with politics on different priorities including migrations, environment, culture, economy, …

Josep Piera: Tornar a Sevilla

Tornar a Sevilla

Aquests dies passats he estat a Sevilla, convidat per les fundacions ACM i Tres Culturas a presentar la reedició de l’Antologia poètica d’Ibn Khafaja d’Alzira. Aquesta presentació sevillana estava preparada de fa temps, però els daltabaixos polítics haguts a Andalusia, probablement, l’han anat retardant. En qualsevol cas, l’acte ha tingut rellevància simbòlica, entre altres coses perquè ha estat possible pel patrocini de les entitats cíviques esmentades, i per haver mostrat a Sevilla el valor del nostre patrimoni poètic.

Feia molt de temps, ja dic, que no tornava a Sevilla, la capital andalusa on tot, abans, era una «maravilla», no sols per la rima i per la pluja. Aquests dies passats, si més no, encara no havia arribat la primavera florida i el cel tenia un to grisós que a penes si deixava caure quatre gotes sobre l’asfalt. L’organització havia reservat un hotel a la vora del riu, potser en homenatge al poeta d’Alzira, per al qual el paradís havia d’estar necessariament a tocar d’un riu, per sentir-ne les fragàncies i les humitats més plaents. Sevilla, tanmateix, semblava apagada, tot i que la gent es mostrava amable, somrient i també alegre.

Per a mi, si més no, la presentació d’aquesta antologia trilingüe (àrab, valencià i castellà) en la biblioteca de la fundació Tres Culturas -creada per a mostrar i vindicar les tres tradicions culturals antigues, altrament dites «les tres tradicions llibresques» -digam-ne la llatina-cristiana, l’àrab-musulmana i l’hebrea-jueva- l’he sentida com una fita fraternal o de germanor cultural que tant de bo poguera obrir noves vies de diàleg i de pluralitat en el futur. Una esperança que a alguns podrà semblar ingènua en aquest temps de crispació, de banalitats, de guirigall mediàtic quan no de retòriques inquisitorials.

Una esperança o desig de civilitat que m’agradaria viure i veure florir -que no florir-se- en aquest futur primaveral. Una esperança en el diàleg necessari, de respecte mutu, que ens permeta somiar idees noves des de l’entesa a tots aquells i aquelles que volem viure en pau i en llibertat en la pell de brau que deia Salvador Espriu, en aquella Sefarad, l’Andalus, Hispània plural o Ibèria de tots. Bells somnis de poetes? Potser sí. Però ja em direu on anirem a parar si no sabem fer reals els somnis dels poetes. Dels poetes que canten en llengües diverses amb la voluntat d’entendre’s, de compartir esperances, alegries, fantasies, il·lusions, memòries… Ja em direu, lectors, quin sentit té la vida sense bells somnis.

Este artículo ha sido publicado en el diario Levante-EMV tras la presentación de la antología poética en edición trilingüe de Ibn Khafaja de Alzira en la sede de la Fundación Tres Culturas del Mediterráneo en Sevilla. Un acto que se celebró el pasado 5 de marzo organizado por la Fundación ACM y la Fundación Tres Culturas, y  en el que estuvo el escritor, acompañado del presidente de la FACM, Vicent Garcés y del director de proyectos de Tres Culturas, Antonio Chaves.

Conclusions of the 13th Annual Parliamentary Assembly of Mediterranean Plenary Session held in Belgrade

PLENARY SESSION CONSOLIDATES PAM’S UNIQUE LEGISLATIVE HARMONISATION ROLE IN THE EUROMEDITERRANEAN REGION

The 13th Plenary Session of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Mediterranean took place in Belgrade on 21-22 February 2019, hosted by the National Assembly of Serbia.
Some 200 participants, from 26 national parliaments, as well as delegates, experts and guests from regional parliaments, the UN system, WTO, the Council of Europe and other International Organisations, senior members of the Serbian Government, Diplomatic Corps, and representatives of the civil society contributed to the debates that enriched the high-level event. In Belgrade, delegates elected a new PAM Bureau, and Senator Alia Bouran of Jordan has been unanimously chosen to lead the works of the Assembly.

Welcomed by the Minister for Foreign Affairs of Serbia and the Deputy Speaker, PAM delegates engaged in concrete debates and exchanged views and experiences on regional security, political developments, terrorism, economy, climate change, human rights, and migration. They unanimously adopted the six resolutions presented on these themes, and which provide the strategic framework for the activities of the Assembly in the coming months.

The Assembly praised the commitment of PAM delegates, the Secretariat and the special envoys who, operating throughout the region, thanks to a decentralised structure, provide the Assembly with a unique platform to coordinate with political partners, international organisations, the productive sector, academia and civil society. An expanded office in the Grand-Genève; a PAM Euro-Mediterranean Regional Research Center in Naples, hosted by the Campania Region; and a reinforced liaison in Marseille – all at no cost to PAM – will integrate the existing PAM structures. These allow for a rationale and effective use of the available resources: reinforced partnership with the UN and WTO in Geneva; better cooperation with the NATO Southern Hub and the PAM’s own academic projects in Naples, including the forthcoming MEDCOP 2019; as well as for a regular cooperation in Marseille in view of the Sommet des deux Rives and those key academic institutions with which PAM enjoys a strategic partnership in the areas of agri-food sustainability and youth employment, in cooperation with the PACA and Piedmont Regions.

In regards to the evolution of the terrorist threat, the challenges posed by returning / relocating Foreign Terrorist Fighters were identified as critical areas which need a coherent and harmonised legislative action at the regional level. Particular emphasis was placed on Prevention of Radicalization, and it was agreed to establish a special PAM Committee on Terrorism, chaired by Italy, which will also look at the delicate theme of “youth and prevention”, and this segment will be facilitated by France. Delegates reviewed political and military developments in Syria and Libya, and committed to sustain national reconciliation processes. They also pledged to fully support the Israeli-Palestinian negotiations in a spirit of constructive dialogue aiming at a comprehensive peace process, ultimately resulting in the Two-State solution.

On the economy, concern was expressed on the signs of a new recession, and a more active role by the EU was solicited, especially for what concerns SMEs, Startups and vocational training. The dynamic partnership between PAM and WTO was praised and it was agreed to establish a joint WTO/PAM Euro-Mediterranean Parliamentary Forum on Trade and Investment Facilitation, which will benefit from an annual conference to foster commerce and investments. The next joint conference will take place in Geneva hosted by WTO. Delegates also welcomed the new partnership with OECD. On environment, having the PAM rapporteur attended the COP 24 in Poland, the absolute need for countries to implement, at the legislative level, the provisions agreed on in Paris, was emphasised. The Assembly will also work at reinforcing its Panel on Economy.

Concerning Human Rights, delegates reiterated their commitments to foster and guarantee human dignity and rights in the region. Delegates adopted the UN Principles on Parliaments and Human Rights and endorsed a work-plan, which includes a series of annual seminars in Geneva and Strasbourg for PAM MPs to be fully familiar with the regional context and the Universal Periodic Review processes. On the issue of migration, the debate highlighted the global scope of the phenomenon, and recalled the absolute need for humanity, rule of law, burden sharing, and a pragmatic and coordinated approach rooted in shared responsibility, also in light of the different sensibilities expressed by PAM countries in relation to the Global Compact on Migration.

The laureates of the annual PAM Prize included four individuals from Israel, Lebanon and Syria, and a community from Italy, who with their example operate in favour of peace, stability and humanity, and deserve the admiration and gratitude of the entire Assembly.
