Eastern Mediterranean Affairs (EMA) is an inter-/trans-/multi-disciplinary magazine of regional focus. Established in the Fall of 2020, EMA aims to become a trusted source of insight and analysis for East-Med regional leaders from government, business, finance, and the academic world. Each issue of EMA is dedicated on a topic concerning the Eastern-Mediterranean region. EMA launches with a thematic issue on ‘International Relations and Crisis Management during COVID-19’.

Future issues will include a variety of timely and relevant topics, such as, indicatively, ‘Energy’ the variable which opened the door for regional collaborations and that has attracted the most attention for the better part of the last decade; ‘Regional cyber geopolitics’, ‘Regional climate changes’, ‘Security in the Eastern-Mediterranean’, ‘Gender imbalances’ and ‘Migration’. EMA promises to publish and make openly accessible new knowledge through concise, and profound analysis.

EMA features interviews, opinion pieces, expert insights and short studies from state and non-state actors, from the Eastern Mediterranean countries, and great powers alike and is to be disseminated to two distinct groups of audiences: 1) decision-makers/leaders/state and non-state opinion-makers with the purpose of enhancing local and intraregional transparency, instigating dialogue between the experts (policy-makers, practitioners/technocrats, stakeholders, academics) and the wider public and 2) wider public/lay audience which will be reading on regional issues of current and urgent nature e.g. ‘COVID-19, health crisis management and international relations in the East Med’.

The magazine will be sent to government organisations, NGOs, Embassies, private companies, universities and will also be freely available for download/viewing on the EMSI website in the EMA dedicated section. EMA is committed to innovate through partnerships that utilize new technologies, new media and creative new approaches to bring together a diverse audience to better understand and address the most urgent and important issues of our time.
