International Parliaments and Conflict Resolution: Mapping the Case of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Mediterranean

Andrea Cofelice
March 2017
 

The literature includes numerous analyses of the role played by regional organizations during the Arab Spring. However, the emerging role played by international parliamentary institutions has not been sufficiently explored. This paper helps fill this gap by assessing the activities performed by the Parliamentary Assembly of the Mediterranean (PAM) in the context of the Arab Spring between 2011 and 2016. The analysis seeks to offer insights into the relationship between regionalism and parliamentary diplomacy and to highlight innovative diplomatic tools developed by PAM.

Keywords: Conflict, Parliamentary Assembly of the Mediterranean (PAM), Arab Spring
