The Anna Lindh Foundation (www.annalindhfoundation.org), which marks in 2015 its 10th anniversary, has a legal personality as an international organization, based in Alexandria (Egypt) and registered with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Arab Republic of Egypt.
The Foundation was created by the governments of the Euro-Mediterranean Partnership - the far-reaching political agreement established in 1995 between the European Union and its Southern Mediterranean partners with the purpose to bring people together from across the Mediterranean to improve mutual respect between cultures and to support civil society working for a common future for the region.
To fulfil this objective, the Foundation leads regional initiatives in the Euro-Med region and supports local activities carried out by civil society organizations which advocate a better understanding among people, religions and beliefs. The Foundation works as Network of Networks in the 42 Euro-Mediterranean countries.
The Foundation is co-funded by the European Union and the 42 countries of the Union for the Mediterranean (UfM) and its contracting procedures are in line with the EU procedures stipulated in the Practical Guide to Contract Procedures for EU External Actions.
