About the Anna Lindh Foundation
The Anna Lindh Foundation promotes intercultural exchanges and common projects among the civil societies of the Euro-Mediterranean region. We are an international institution, established by the governments of the Euro-Mediterranean Partnership and the European Union as the central institution for intercultural dialogue among the people of the region.
From our headquarters in Alexandria, Egypt, we run the largest Euro-Med Network of civil society organisations, facilitating partnerships and common projects across 42 countries. We lead programmes in the fields of education, culture and media, develop region-wide civic campaigns with our Networks, and provide grants for civil society to support trans-Mediterranean cooperation initiatives. Through the publication of the Anna Lindh Report on Intercultural Trends and Social Change, we also provide advocacy and proposals to policy-makers and opinion-leaders for the Euro-Med dialogue agenda.

The values of the Anna Lindh Foundation are the ones of the Euro-Mediterranean Partnership included in the Barcelona Declaration of 1995 and reinforced in the Summit of the Union for the Mediterranean in 2008:
Respect for diversity and pluralism, promotion of mutual understanding between different groups in society, and combating manifestation of intolerance, racism and xenophobia, promotion of peace, rule of law and democracy, respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms.
In line with the strategy approved by the Board of Governors for 2012-2014:
We conceive intercultural dialogue as a ‘people-to-people trust-building exercise’, inter-connected with valuing diversity, promoting social participation in building open and plural societies, and fostering human development and fundamental rights.
