The event brought together more than 1000 animators and organizers from civil society organizations, in additions to politicians and is aims to become a reference point, on the one hand, for the relaunch of Euro-Mediterranean dialogue following the Arab Spring uprisings, and for developing an understanding of the social impact of the economic crisis in Europe, on the other.
The “recommendations” resulting from the various debates, seminars and meetings will form a road map for a better euro-med policy, in addition to developing and strengthening ALF’s own intercultural mission. In fact, a Steering Committee was set up for the Forum with the Parliamentary Assembly and Secretariat of the Union for the Mediterranean, the European Commission and the Arab League.
