On January 4th 2016, MEDAC and the Anna Lindh Foundation (ALF) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) as the basis for a long-term programme of activity for Euro-Mediterranean cooperation. The MOU builds on the existing partnership between the two Mediterranean institutions, focusing on reinforcing the central role of intercultural dialogue and cultural diplomacy through various initiatives.One of the initiatives envisaged in the MOU is the co-hosting of an annual joint activity in Malta for cultural diplomacy which builds on the ALF's existing regional youth civil society network and MEDAC's alumni network of young diplomats. MEDAC and ALF will also cooperate in research activities as well as in the organisation of the 3rd edition of the Anna Lindh Mediterranean Forum which will be held in Malta in October 2016.

The signing was preceded by a meeting between MEDAC Chairperson Dr Joe Borg, MEDAC Director Professor Stephen Calleya and other MEDAC academics with the Executive Director of the ALF Ambassador Hatem Atallah and Mr Paul Walton (ALF's Head of the Executive Office). During this meeting both sides expressed their satisfaction at the longstanding cooperation between them and committed themselves to enhance and strengthen this cooperation in an effort to contribute to a more peaceful and stable Euro-Mediterranean region.  

Following the signing of the MOU Ambassador Atallah delivered a keynote lecture to MEDAC students highlighting the importance of cultural diplomacy and intercultural dialogue within the Euro-Mediterranean region. In his address Ambassador Atallah outlined the role of the ALF in enhancing intercultural dialogue and cooperation and emphasized the crucial role of youth in this process. The lecture was followed by a Q and A session with MEDAC students and academics.
