Heritage of Braudel’s Mediterranean
Stream Leader: Dr. Elina Gugliuzzo, Academic Member, ATINER & Professor, Pegaso University (Unipegaso), Italy.
The starting point is a reflection on the French historian and founder of the Annales school, Fernand Braudel, whose great work, The Mediterranean and the Mediterranean World in the Age of Philip II, provides a commanding overview of this region as a whole, of the forces, long-term, conjunctural and immediate, that shaped it, and of the manner in which, in the second half of the sixteenth century as much as in the first part of the twenty-first, the countries of the Mediterranean interact and engage as much with the world beyond, to the east, north and west, as they do with each other. Braudel’s inheritance on the Mediterranean area is a “must” of our historiography. But following Braudel’inheritance, other tools have to be extracted from the new trends in the social sciences and the humanities: the global perspective, but also new approaches to ecology and environmental history and studies, the development of “Border Studies” and Transnational Studies. Most of these topics and trends have been identified and intensely deployed in other parts of the world, like the Carribean, the southern border of the United States, the Indian Ocean, whereas the actual and contemporary Mediterranean seems to be too old-fashioned, too impressive, too dissuasive.

Valuation of Marine Ecological Services: The Mediterranean
Stream Leader: Dr. Mordechai Shechter, Professor Emeritus, Department of Economics, University of Haifa, Israel.
The outcome of the proposed panel may provide fundamental estimation of the wide array of present and forthcoming ecosystem services. Any future management scheme for these resources must in the future take into account not only the inherent values of ecosystem services, but also the possible trade-offs between various management policies as well as their economic and social implications (often uncertain). In order to fully encapsulate the realized and potential benefits of marine ecosystem services, research should be expanded to include all ecosystem services and to explore means for possibly enhancing existing benefits. In addition, the research should explore possible conflicts with other marine usages (e.g. extraction and utilization of energy resources, maritime traffic, coastal – e.g., recreational – and marine infrastructure expansion) as well as the investigation of possible pathways for future sustainable management of the seas.
