Abstract

During the last decades the Mediterranean has turned into one of the main geopolitical hotspots where new economic, military and ideological struggles are underway. While the fragile regional security architecture seems governed by a “Hobbesian” state of relations, many drivers of instability and turmoil have arisen, pushing the region into a situation of permanent tension. What appears today is the image of a Mediterranean fragmented into a series of inter-connected geopolitical as well as domestic crises which involve international and regional powers and local, national as well as subnational actors through new proxy wars. The roots of this instability are very complex and dependent on the history and social fabric of this region.
