A geopolitical analysis of flows and trends of the current and future interlinkages between food and migration, with a focus on the Mediterranean countries. Among the speakers, Antonio Bombelli, CMCC IAFES Division Director.

On February 11 2019, Unilab Unimi will organize the event “Food & Migration: understanding the geopolitical nexus in the Euro-Mediterranean” in collaboration with Barilla Center for Food & Nutrition, MacroGeo and CMCC Foundation – Euro-Mediterranean Center on Climate Change, with the support of University of Milan.
Among the speakers: Prof. Livia Pomodoro (UNESCO), Katarzyna Dembska (BCFN Foundation, researcher and coordinator of the contest “BCFN YES!”), Prof. Lucio Caracciolo (MacroGeo President, Founder and Director of the Italian magazine of geopolitics “Limes”), Antonio Bombelli (IAFES Division Director at the CMCC Foundation), Prof. Pier Filippo Giuggioli (University of Milan), Prof. Maria Angela Lupone (SPES) as moderator.

In a time when the nexus food-migration is at the center of public debate, the seminar will offer a wider understanding of flows and trends of the current and future interlinkages between food and migration, with a focus on the Mediterranean countries, through a geopolitical perspective. The study combines geopolitical analysis (resources, flows, migratory routes) and the analysis of food and nutrition, through a series of different and heterogeneous essays; the event will explore several issues such as the nexus between migration, climate change and geopolitics of resources, water and energy, agriculture, research and technology in order to foster the dialogue on such issues and provide recommendations and solutions for decision-makers.
