FAQ I – The Macroregions
Q: Do the Macroregions have the same character of European Union initiatives?
A: The Macroregions have a totally different character from the interstate or interregional cooperations that are typical of European Union initiatives, which only materialize in cooperative tables of Entities or Ministries of individual countries. The Macroregions are, in fact, Entities directly promoted by the European Union and have a much broader scope, beyond the individual Regions, the individual States and even beyond the European Union.
Q: What are the Macroregions from?
A: In particulate Macroregion, were stated in the Lisbon Treaty, signed on 13 December 2007, which strengthens the participation of citizens and the territorial cooperation of peoples.
Q: What are the Macroregions and which are they?
A: “Macroregions are new strengthened forms of government of the European Union, as they aim at a agreement on issues of common interest, between the area realities of the member states of the same area”, also involving territorial realities outside Europe, and to “promote synergies rather than discrimination and overlaps “. The Macroregions promote and develop actions in of common interest such as economy, environment, energy, health, transport, education and culture, fight against crime, research and innovation, social assistance, protection of the minors and tourism.
The five Macroregions are:
– Baltic Sea (EUSBSR),
– Danube (EUSDR),
– Adriatic and Ionian (EUSAIR),
– Alpine (EUSALP)
– Mediterranean (EUSMED).
To get information on the Mediterranean Macroregion, see EUSMED entry in Wikipedia.
Q: How does the strategy of the Macroregion competences interacts with the strategy of the European Union and avoid overlapping with European or state competences?

Q: How is the Macroregion involved in the elaboration of the strategy of the European Union and how does the European Union implement the strategic proposals of the Macroregion?
A: The Macroregion is part of a circular model of the European Union.
The Macroregion is:
– both an instrument of integration of peoples (i.e. modalities of participation produced by the European Union towards peoples, therefore in the direction of Europe-Citizens);
– and an instrument for the peoples for strategic elaboration (i.e. modalities of participation from the bottom towards the European Union, therefore in the Citizens-Europe direction).

The FAQ on the Mediterranean Macroregion are permanent updated and improved, based on the questions but also on proposals and suggestions.
Q: Why the Macroregion of the Mediterranean Sea, that is Mediterranean, and not distinct areas with a smaller population and territory? What can we say, in particular, of the Central Western Area of the Mediterranean or of Southern Italy (erroneously called the “Macroregion of the South of Italy”)?
A: According to the legislation of the European Union and the Procedure and the strategy of the European Union the interests are the ones concerning the whole Mediterranean Territory. In this Mediterranean context, the specific issues pertaining to the less extensive Central Western Area of the Mediterranean and pertaining to Southern Italy (which is erroneously called Macroregion) also assume a relevant importance. The Mediterranean Macroregion is, in fact, within the scope envisaged by the European Union, the Entity that guides an interactive flow of strategic actions concernIng all the Mediterranean territories. In the context of the Mediterranean Macroregional Strategy, the South of Italy, therefore, has a truly significant role and is a real protagonist t becoming the Vital Center of Italy, Europe and the Mediterranean.
Q: Do parties play an active role in the Mediterranean Macroregion?
A: The European and national parties (from the Mediterranean, European and non-European countries) are certainly an active part in the Mediterranean Macroregion and they too deepen the issues of the near future synergies, given the successful launch of the Mediterranean Macroregion. The parties, however, do not have the predominance in the Mediterranean public life nor they access through electoral lists to the Bodies of the Mediterranean Macroregion (including the Mediterranean Parliament, made up of twelve Mediterranean Parliamentarians) but through Procedures to encourage participation and meritocracy.
Q: Who and what does the Mediterranean Macroregion protect?

“The macro-strategy for the Mediterranean (divided into two sub-regional strategies) must fit into the framework of the Europe 2020 strategy, existing programs and EU financial facilitation mechanisms, and make use of European initiatives such as the Interact program for the provision of technical assistance and training. However, a new structure will have to be created to manage and facilitate the functioning of the institutions. The Macroregional strategy will have to give birth to new approaches that are an advantage for the countries involved, with the prospect of practical measures and policies that can be successfully applied ”.
The cohesive forces are structured according to European legislation.

FAQ III bis – Procedure
Q: The process of constitution and formalization of the Mediterranean Macroregion started before 2008 and ended positively with the constitution and formalization only in 2018. Were there any disputes in any passage of this long period?
A: From 2008 (and before) till 2018 there have been ten years (and more) of continuous initiatives for the Mediterranean Macroregion. The Assembly of the Mediterranean Macroregion of 9 November 2018 was the landing point which, as per acts, updated every aspect and gave a stable, always open form to the Macroregional Procedure and to the programmatic contents, establishing and formalizing the Mediterranean Macroregion . Nobody (not even the European Union itself, not even the States themselves nor other public or private entities) can contest the completeness of the path, the establishment of the Mediterranean Macroregion and the development of the Process that launched the strategy. No dispute has ever been made. All the legitimate components participated in each step.
Q: Is the program document of the Mediterranean Macroregion open to further improvement contributions?
A: The programmatic document of the Mediterranean Macroregion is always open to further improving contributions. The specific contents, in our case, are deliberately open to be defined at the same time when the strategy is launched by the Council of the European Union. The document prepared is the Macroregional Strategic Framework which defines the key actions. With the launch of the strategy and the allocation of funding sources, the operational program will also always be open to comparison among Mediterranean realities.
Q: Were or are the adhesions of individual States or heads of government necessary for the Mediterranean Macroregion?
A: No, the adhesions of the individual states were and are not necessary. The Macroregion is directly recognized by the European Union the States have joined to. The Mediterranean Macroregion, in its European supranational dimension and also for its entrusted extra-European action, is always in connection with every supranational state, regional reality, both institutional and civil.
Q: What are the political and institutional events that led to the birth and formalization of the Mediterranean Macroregion?
A: The Mediterranean Macroregion was decided by the Macroregional Assembly after a protracted inertia, due exclusively to reasons of political equilibrium, by the public administrations of Southern Italy which had emerged as the Headquarters and Coordination Center of the Mediterranean Macroregion. As we know, these choices are made normally, in substance, from overall European agreements that consider territorial and political balances. More concretely, in the European political agreement it had been established for some time that Southern Italy, geographically suitable for its Mediterranean centrality and excluded from other opportunities, should be the one to identify the proceeding public administration of the Mediterranean Macroregion and thus guide the Macroregional strategic process. Since the agreement between the southern political forces for the specific southern public administration has repeatedly failed in the agreement, the Macroregional Assembly has decided to unanimously appoint the current Campania Ombudsman as the proceeding public administration, considering both the international authority of Avv. Giuseppe Fortunato and his experiences as President of three international organizations (two of the Civic Defense and one of the Privacy Guarantors). Given the delays compared to other Macroregional processes and given the lack of agreements between the political forces, the Macroregional Assembly has so avoided reducing itself to the place of ratification of previous inter-party decisions taken outside it, inter-party decisions, however, never taken. The Macroregional Assembly has acted in an institutional and unexceptionable way which has been unanimously shared. The authoritative panel that immediately wanted this decision and proposed and promoted it aroused respect and consideration in the entire Macroregional Assembly, since it consists of institutional realities, such as the Basilicata Region, relevant Institutes such as SVIMEZ and Eurispes, consular representations, both European and non-European, in continuous relationship with the States, large Associations of European and international importance, the highest expressions of civil society (in the front row the realities of Civicrazia, advanced point of civil society), Confindustria, trade unions, editorials, associations of local autonomies of European importance, which had leading roles from the beginning, of the Macroregional procedure.
This proposal met a growing enthusiasm and no opposition by Catalonia, Cyprus, Malta, France and other European realities which, in the decision-making block of the southern Italian administrations, had previously also asked for a legitimate candidacy but then agreed to an international application. It is no coincidence that the decision adopted, authoritative and free from any bond, had the unanimous consent of both the European and non-European representations that intervened. The Macroregional assembly deed and the consequent published public decree have not been challenged and the non-invalidating proceeding Macroregional public administration was established. Had anyone wanted to challenge – and it would have been absurd because there isn’t any illegality or irregularity! – He should have done it within the deadlines, which have expired. For the Mediterranean Macroregion we are now in a consolidated model, elected in the assembly with a specific mandate, which now goes ahead to launch the Strategy with the decision of the Council of the European Union, as Europe cannot remain unbalanced, having granted the strategy only to the other four Macroregions.
Q: Must the states have formalized their membership for the constitution of the Mediterranean Macroregion or for the strategy of the Mediterranean Macroregion?
A: Neither for the establishment of the Mediterranean Macroregion nor for the strategy of the Mediterranean Macroregion it is necessary to formalize state membership. The Mediterranean Macroregion is neither a union of States nor an interstate organization (because there are other initiatives by the European Union in this sense), but derives directly from the European Union according to the specific Macroregional Procedure. The Mediterranean Macroregion acts directly according to the European Union Macroregional Procedure. The Macroregional Procedure of the European Union does not require the formalization of membership of individual States. It happens as for the constitution or development of a state institution that does not require membership of Regions or for the constitution or development of a regional institution that does not require membership of municipalities.
Q: What about the EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT’S MOTION FOR A RESOLUTION on the evolution of EU Macroregional strategies: current practices and future prospects, particularly in the Mediterranean (2012)?
A: It was incorporated into the EESC’s subsequent definitional opinion.
D: The Opinion of the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) (2013) states that “The macro-strategy for the Mediterranean” is “divided into two sub-regional strategies”. What are the two sub-regional strategies and which are the two sub-regions?
A: The EESC aims to put an end to the hypothesis of separate pieces in the Mediterranean. The two strategies are those of the macro-western sub-region and the macro-eastern sub-region, as part of the Mediterranean Macroregion which is thus divided.
Q: When and how will the launch of the Mediterranean Macroregion Strategy take place?
A: The Strategy of the Mediterranean Macroregion is at the end of the 25th and last Step with the decisions of the Council and the Commission, preceded by the SMEA.
Q: Are there any obstacles in the European programming for the Mediterranean strategy?
A: There are no obstacles in the European programming; on the contrary, the Mediterranean strategy resolves imbalances.
Q: The EESC pointed out that “a new structure will have to be created to manage and facilitate the functioning of the institutions”. Was this structure created?
A: The structure that the EESC was talking about is the current Macroregional structure, made up of the Persons in charge.
FAQ IV – The Organization of the Mediterranean Macroregion
Q: What is the organizing secretariat of the Mediterranean Macroregion and by whom was it established?
A: The organizing secretariat of the Mediterranean Macroregion is the Office that proceeds according to the Motion unanimously approved by the Assembly of the Mediterranean Macroregion and according to decree n. 9 of 12 November 2018 published in the Official Bulletin of the Campania Region (BURC) n. 89 of 29 November 2018 and was established on 29 November 2018 by the proceeding public administration. The organizing secretariat of the Mediterranean Macroregion has a permanently dynamic character and is made up of no more than three members.
Q: What is the Mediterranean Parliament?
A: The Mediterranean Parliament is the highest organ of the Mediterranean Macroregion. The Mediterranean Parliament is governed by merit-based participation and is formalized, with certification to each individual Mediterranean Parliamentary, by the proceeding public administration. The Mediterranean Parliament operates between the National, European and Mediterranean Parliaments, and the European Parliament and operates between the European Parliament and other international institutions affecting the Mediterranean, always favoring the most of synergies. The “working between” implies the setting up of the Mediterranean Parliament as a link, favoring any possible interactive flow as the Macroregion stimulates inter-institutional cooperation.
Q: How can I enter the Mediterranean Parliament?
A: You can enter The Mediterranean Parliament by holding the roles of Action Group Coordinator or Macro-Assessor, after having successfully completed the appropriate Procedure.
Q: How many Mediterranean Parliamentarians does the Mediterranean Parliament consist of?
A: The Mediterranean Parliament is made up of a total of twelve Mediterranean Parliamentarians (Action Group Coordinators and Macro Assessors), who rigorously and continuously respect the specific Standards and positively complete the appropriate Procedure.
Q: What does the Mediterranean Parliament do?
A: The Mediterranean Parliament is the highest body of the Mediterranean Macroregion.
The Mediterranean Parliament manages the Mediterranean Macroregion. Each Mediterranean Parliamentarian operates within the assigned responsibilities. The Mediterranean Macroregion, according to the various competences attributed within the Mediterranean Parliament, can issue specific regulations, development plans, and calls.
Q: What is the Structure of the Mediterranean Macroregion?
A: The Structure of the Mediterranean Macroregion is the directive and managing organization of the Mediterranean Macroregion and is made up of the Heads of the Offices and Editors of the Mediterranean Macroregion.
Q: What does the Structure of the Mediterranean Macroregion do?
A: The Structure of the Mediterranean Macroregion achieves the objectives of the Mediterranean Macroregion.
Q: Are there delegates from organizations in the bodies of the Mediterranean Macroregion?
A: Delegation in the participatory and meritocratic model of the Mediterranean Macroregion is not foreseen and therefore there are no delegates. In Macroregional Procedures, no one (State, Region, public or private body) has the right to veto or have delegates but only to propose people with the requisites to participate in Procedures. Macroregional participation is expressed with the merit-based possibility of everyone to access all roles and to develop in the highest roles through Procedures. People can enter the roles of the Mediterranean Macroregion and develop through Procedures (not by delegation, representation or elections).
Q: How can you enter the roles of the Mediterranean Macroregion and how can you develop in the roles of the Mediterranean Macroregion?
A: All roles are entered through specific Procedures and all roles are developed through specific Procedures. The Assembly has unanimously appointed the proceeding Public Administration, that is the Ombudsman at the Campania Region which established, as requested, the organizational secretariat of the Mediterranean Macroregion; the organizational secretariat of the Mediterranean Macroregion, records the incardination of roles and the development of roles according to Procedures. Specific Standards must be respected in each role and higher Standards must be respected to develop into higher roles.
Q: How can you enter the Mediterranean Parliament of twelve Mediterranean Parliamentarians and how do you develop in the specific internal roles in the Mediterranean Parliament?
A: The Mediterranean Parliament is entered through a specific Procedure and develops into internal roles in the Mediterranean Parliament through specific Procedures. The organizational secretariat of the Mediterranean Macroregion records the engagement in the Mediterranean Parliament and the development of internal roles in the Mediterranean Parliament according to specific procedures in compliance with the relative rigorous Standards.
Q: How are the activities attributed and how are the roles entrusted in the Mediterranean Macroregion?
A: The activities are assigned and the roles are entrusted with the self-collocation method which is not a party or elective method but is based on the respected Standards. Procedures are envisaged for this purpose.
Q: Is it possible in the Mediterranean Macroregion to fill a role without respecting the Standards of the same role?
A: The Self-Collocation model makes it impossible to fill a role without respecting the Standards of the same role because, in this model, the role coincides with the relative Standards. In other words, in order to continue to fill a role it is necessary to continue to respect the relative Standards and to develop into a higher role one must respect the relative Standards.
Q: How are the Standards identified?
- A: Goals, then Paths with sub-goals, then Standards.
Q: Does each Standard have a different weight?
A: There is no weighting, which would assume subjective characteristics, but the preceding logical order of the Standards. In other words, the secondary Standard is evaluated only if and after the primary Standard, which is dichotomous, is respected.
Q: Parliament is governed by merit-based participation. Is it understood that the criterion to enter the Mediterranean Parliament is that of meritocracy, i.e. that the identification of a member of Mediterranean Parliament takes place according to meritocratic criteria?
A: Yes, not just the access policy. The access, confirmation and development procedures are meritocratic. The merit-based procedure permanently entails compliance with the Standards or non-compliance with the Standards and overcoming the appropriate Procedures and therefore inclusion or self-exclusion.
Q: What is the mandatory standard for all managers of the Mediterranean Macroregion?
A: The mandatory Standard for all Managers is to promptly and precisely check the emails in which a reply is requested, communicating the results of the activities properly carried out to ensure permanent communication.
