The Anna Lindh Foundation launches today the Intercultural Dialogue Resource Centre in order to make research, good practices, learning activities, expertise and events on intercultural dialogue in the Euro-Mediterranean accessible to everyone.
At the time of the launch, the Centre contains information on more than 100 curated academic publications and the biographies and contact information for 100 experts. It also offers visitors a selection of journalistic articles, events, learning activities developed especially for civil society and around 30 good practices presenting successful projects addressing a variety of issues relating to intercultural encounters, trends and affairs in the Euro-Mediterranean region.
“In times of polarization and mistrust, it is important to support all actors that are building bridges among people and cultures. From academics shaping our understanding of the world to civil-society with first eyes on the ground to journalists guiding the public debate”, states Executive Director of the Anna Lindh Foundation Dr Nabil Al-Sharif.
“In addition to supporting actors who are already working with intercultural relations, we want to inspire people who are interested in the area, but would like to learn more. That is why I would encourage students, academics and cultural operators looking for resources to visit the Centre", continues Eleonora Insalaco, Head of Operations and Intercultural Research at the Anna Lindh Foundation.
