Prof. Purchla in ALF Board of Governors

On April 26, 2012, during the 36th meeting of the ALF Board of Governors in Brussels, the new Advisory Council for the years 2012–2014 was formally elected. Professor Jacek Purchla, the Director of the ICC, was elected as a representative of Poland.

Presided by the Foundation’s President (currently, Mr. André Azoulay) and comprised of leading Euro-Mediterranean experts on intercultural dialogue (9 representatives of the countries of the so-called North and 9 representatives of the countries of the Southern shore of the Mediterranean Sea), the Advisory Council will be responsible for advising the ALF Executive Director, Networks and Board of Governors on its strategic direction for Phase III (2012-14), in particular the role of the ALF in the new regional context following 2011’s Arab Awakening and the consequences of the global economic crisis on intercultural relations in Europe.
