The European University Institute is pleased to announce the upcoming workshop Superpower Rivalry and the Third Way(s) in the Mediterranean, to be held in Florence and Montecatini Terme from 24-27 March 2010.

The workshop will examine the competing interests and political, economic, and cultural influences of the Non-Aligned Movement against those of the Superpowers in the Cold War Mediterranean. From this region's perspective, we consider the meaning of non-alignment, its protagonists and its ramifications for a "third way" between the blocs. The workshop seeks to bring together scholars with diverse disciplinary perspectives and expertise on the Non-Aligned Movement and the superpower confrontation in the region.
