Extremism and incitement to hatred are some of the challenges facing Mediterranean countries and we believe that intercultural dialogue is an important tool to tackle the issue. In this regard, Partners for Transparency, head of the Egyptian network of the Anna Lindh Foundation, collaborates with the networks of Spain, Estonia, Belgium and Luxembourg in the project ‘Intercultural dialogue to combat hate speech’, with the support of the Anna Lindh Foundation. The aim is to use intercultural dialogue as a tool to combat hate speech in order to:

  • Create a more tolerant society,
  • Underline the importance of the Anna Lindh Foundation and the Networks in this process
  • Enable young people in the region to confront extremism and hate speech
  • Raise awareness of all kinds of discrimination resulting from hate speech
  • Support and promote cultural dialogue to fight against incitement to hatred
  • Talk about discrimination or hate speech that people are exposed to when traveling to other countries in the region
  • Correct misconceptions among young people in Mediterranean countries

Initiatives must be taken between Mediterranean countries to combat hatred and extremist speech, in particular because this issue is consistent with the objectives of the Anna Lindh Foundation. This forum is held with the participation of young people from 5 countries (Egypt / Spain / Estonia / Belgium / Luxembourg), heads of the Anna Lindh Foundation network in these regions, public figures in Egypt and European ambassadors in Egypt.

Organized by Partners for Transparency ( Egypt )

In collaboration with:

  • Les Nouveaux Disparus ASBL (Belgium)
  • Our Common Future Asb (Luxembourg)
  • European institute of the Mediterranean (Spain)
  • Women’s NGOs Cooperation Network of Latvia as part of the European Women’s Lobby
