Intercultural dialogue in the wake of the Arab Spring: Anna Lindh to hold high-level meeting to meet new challenges in the Mediterranean

In the wake of the historical changes underway in the Euro-Mediterranean region, which mark major new challenges and opportunities for the Anna Lindh Foundation, the ‘High Level Advisory Group for a Renewed Strategy of Intercultural Dialogue in the Emerging Mediterranean’ will meet in Brussels tomorrow, 22 November, at the European Commission Headquarters.
A press release said the meeting would bring together 60 personalities including for the first time members of the 2003 ‘Groupe des Sages’ (the forefathers of the Foundation commissioned by then President of the European Commission, Romano Prodi), members of the Foundation’s Advisory Council, and strategic partners, among them the Arab League, the European Parliament, the Council for Europe, UNESCO and the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations.
The meeting will begin with the opening remarks of Stefan Füle, European Union Commissioner for Enlargement and European Neighbourhood Policy, and André Azoulay, President of the Anna Lindh Foundation.
The Anna Lindh Foundation for the Dialogue between Cultures is a €7 million EU-funded project which aims at bringing people and organisations of the region closer and promoting dialogue, by offering them opportunities to work together on projects in the fields of culture, education, science, human rights, sustainable development, the empowerment of women and the arts. The Foundation is the first institution to be jointly created and co-financed by all member countries of the Euro-Mediterranean Partnership. (ENPI Info Centre)
