With its rich multifaceted expertise and an extensive international network, CIHEAM contributes to the debate of ideas by producing knowledge and conducting scientific and technical analyses. Our publications and communication tools are aimed at facilitating decision-making processes for political, economic and agricultural stakeholders, but also to provide students, researchers, journalists and other civil society players with the essential keys to understanding the Mediterranean.
In addition to its publications, CIHEAM relies on other institutional communication tools (websites, social networks, etc.) in order to disseminate information on its activities and share knowledge with the largest number of people.
Options Méditerranéennes was originally a two-monthly journal and developed into a set of collective works arranged in several series: Studies, Mediterranean Seminars, Studies and Research and Cahiers Options Méditerranéennes.
Since 2008, the issues have been arranged in two series:
Series A "Mediterranean seminars" includes the proceedings of all seminars and meetings organized by or in collaboration with CIHEAM.
Series B "Studies and Research" includes the research papers presenting research outcomes by lecturers and researchers in the framework of the activities of the Institutes.
