MEDAC Director and staff take part in the Preparatory Meeting for the Anna Lindh Forum:


On Friday 5th and Saturday 6th March, MEDAC staff led by Director Prof. Stephen Calleya participated in the formal launch of preparations for the 3rd edition of the Euro-Mediterranean Forum for Intercultural Dialogue.  The two day meeting in Valletta gathered representatives from regional institutions and civil society networks.  The Forum will take place in Valletta on October 24th and 25th 2016 and will represent the largest single gathering of civil society working to promote intercultural dialogue across the Mediterranean region.  The Maltese Ministry of Foreign Affairs is strongly supporting the initiative.


During the meeting in Valletta, there was a strong consensus on the need to leverage the Forum process to reaffirm the centrality of intercultural action in creating solutions in the face of transnational challenges impacting on societies in the region, including the impact of the refugee crisis, extremism and rising xenophobia, migration and youth unemployment. The Maltese government and participating regional institutions also underlined their commitment to ensuring the Forum process can have a central contribution to influencing the European Neighbourhood Policy Review. Key drivers of the intercultural dialogue agenda were identified for the Forum as a result of the 2-day meeting, with a strategic focus on: cross-cultural reporting; intercultural education; artistic mobility; social entrepreneurship and new models of civil society development; and the future intercultural cities.
