A New Paradigm: Perspectives on the Changing Mediterranean is a collection of essays by scholars and activists from the north and south Mediterranean, Europe, and the United States. The contributors draw on their diverse experiences and perspectives to shine a light on a number of current and emerging Mediterranean issues and offer policy recommendations to tackle the challenges in the region. Taken as a whole, the volume suggests that greater international cooperation and inclusiveness are needed to promote a freer, more prosperous future for the people living in the broader Mediterranean Basin.
