MCA Survey Report 2014 provides the MCA with a much needed tool for a better understanding of the Mediterranean citizens’ views, expectations, concerns and values of Euro-Mediterranean societies; redefine new programing and instruments with respect to education, interaction, mobility, the use of new technologies, and further commitment towards young people. Furthermore, it will help MCA to assess the impact of the increased dialogue efforts, to bridge gaps, narrow intersections and overlaps, and reinforce opportunities for synergies.Last but not least, the results of the MCA Survey 2014 presented in this Report are encouraging and clearly show that we have to gear up our efforts to improve understanding and cooperative relations among nations and peoples across cultures and religions in the Mediterranean region and, in the process, help counter the forces that fuel polarization and extremism. The Survey Report confirms that the Mediterranean people wish for building on a shared and meaningful space to live together in mutual respect and peace.
