ALDA active member of the Anna Lindh Foundation French network: Euro-Mediterranean Day in Strasbourg
On 28th May, ALDA Strasbourg organises a Euro-Mediterranean day dedicated to the work of the French network of Anna Lindh Foundation and its Working group on Euro-Mediterranean cooperation.
The events are organised in cooperation with the European Mouvement Alsace, Association migration solidarité et échanges pour le développement (AMSED) and Collège doctoral européen.
The activities will include an information meeting at the AMSED premises from 3 to 5 p.m. Chaired by Esther Fouchier, General delegate to the Forum Femmes Meditérranée (FFM), leader of the French FAL network, this meeting will present the work and the achievements of the Foundation and its French network to attract interested new members and debate on topics of concern as potential guidelines for the French network's future agenda.
From 6.30 to 8 p.m. ALDA's Head of Programme Implementation Biljana Zasova will moderate a debate on the topic “European debates: what place for Euro-Mediterranean relations?”. Three persons will give presentations: Esther Fouchier, Antonella Cagnolatti, Coordinator of the Lisbonne Forum and President of the ALDA Scientific Committee as well as Catherine Delcroix, Sociaology Professor and Director of the European Dynamics Laboratory at the Strasbourg University.
The discussions will have two major paths: the potential consequences of the European Parliament elections results to the efforts for a Euro-mediterranean cooperation; and beyond the elections, is there a clear path among European member States on their cooperation with the south bank of the Mediterranean? Mrs Cagnolatti will present the Council of Europe experience in the matter, Mrs Fouchier the Anna Lindh Foundation's stance and last but not least, Mrs Delcroix will intervene to present her Laboratory's work and the possibilities for inter-University cooperation between both shores of the Mediterranean.
This event is supported by the Anna Lindh Foundation and is part of the programme developed by ALDA and the FFM. This event Is part of ALDA's Tournesol process of opening towards the Mediterranean. ALDA is an active member of the French network since 2009.
