The ESS-South is designed to examine the threats to Europe emanating from the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) and to develop appropriate responses to regional security challenges. Indeed, the effects of transnational terrorism, illicit trafficking, illegal migration, civil war and conflicts have been acutely felt within the region and along Europe’s southern flank. They challenge the political, economic, and social stability of the entire continents of Africa and Europe. Multilateral and whole-of- government approaches are essential to addressing these multi-faceted problems.
