The 6th coordination meeting of the UniDem project for the southern Mediterranean took place via videoconference on 27 May 2021. This annual meeting gathers national coordinators representing Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestine* and Tunisia. Participants took stock of the UniDem Med 2020 seminars and discussed their respective priorities as regards modernisation of public administration. During the meeting, the participants determined the topics, dates and venues of the next UniDem Med seminars in 2021.
The UniDem seminars were established for the Southern Mediterranean region in September 2015, with the aim of modernising public administration in the region through the exchange of best democratic practices among senior civil servants from the two shores of the Mediterranean.
The seminars are co-funded by the European Union and the Council of Europe, and implemented by the Council of Europe in the framework of the South Programme IV “Regional Support to Reinforce Human rights, Rule of Law and Democracy in the Southern Mediterranean".
