The Anna Lindh Foundation (ALF) hosted a meeting entitled ‘The Role of Citizens in Building Open and Plural Societies’ in Tunis. Hundreds of civil society leaders and experts, representatives of ALF National Networks, and key partner institutions coming from 18 countries took a closer look at the challenges that Arab countries have to face three years after the begin of the Arab Spring. Mr Andreu Claret, ALF Executive Director, declared “the exercise of dialogue and participation is in line with the values and objectives of the Anna Lindh Foundation, an institution that promotes intercultural dialogue in the Euro-Mediterranean space”.

ALDA fully supports the ALF approach as it is convinced that the participation of social society at the process of political and social change in some Arab countries, can reinforce the euro-Mediterranean cooperation process.

Since 2012, within the “Programme Tournesol” (Sunflower), ALDA decided to strengthen its activities towards South and East of the Mediterranean bank, particularly in Tunisia. By reinforcing its relationships with the ALF France Network and future joint project, ALDA aims at supporting the participation of civil society to local decision-making processes, by also helping local authorities to be more open and transparent, and encouraging them to take into account the needs of the civil society and of the citizens.
