Activities

The 'Mediterranean Dialogue' aims to create good relations and better mutual understanding throughout the Mediterranean and to promote regional security and stability. It provides for political discussions with participating countries. Annual Work Programme focuses on practical cooperation in security and defence-related areas, information, civil emergency planning and science. Progressive political dialogue is normally bilateral although multilateral meetings may be held on a case-by-case basis. Partners in the Dialogue may take part in courses at NATO SCHOOL Oberammergau (NSO), with a number of international fellowships available for researchers from the Dialogue countries, and may participate in specific NATO activities in science, information, civil emergency planning and disaster management.
