EUMENIA International Conference in Amman, Jordan

The EUMENIA International Conference has been held at the University of Jordan, in Amman, on the 28th-29th of March. This conference was a great opportunity to fulfil one of the fundamental aims of EUMENIA, and bring together academics, students and policy makers from the EU and the Middle East.

The conference was opened with welcome remarks from Dr. Wisam Hazimeh (Assistant Professor, University of Jordan) and Dr. Dimitris Bouris (Leader and Coordinator of EUMENIA, University of Amsterdam).

Many thanks are due to our keynote speakers, Mr. Ádám Janssen, Political Counsellor at the European Union Delegation to the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan and Hayajneh Akram, Deputy of the EU Affairs department at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
