On 31 May, sildenafil 2013, 60 alumni from the UN Alliance of Civilizations Fellowship Programme will convene in Baku, Azerbaijan. The alumni meeting is taking place in the context of the Second World Forum on Intercultural Dialogue. The forum will allow alumni of the Fellowship Programme to share their experiences with a broader community of policymakers and practitioners in the field of cross-cultural understanding.

The fellows hail from a number of regions, including North America, Europe and the Middle East and North Africa, and participated in the programme between 2010 and 2012. This will be the first opportunity for the alumni, all of whom are advocates for dialogue and understanding between the Western and the Muslim worlds, to meet each other. This meeting will also enable the group to work toward creating a loose but vibrant network.

As an exposure tour for young emerging leaders, the Fellowship Programme is unique in that it is jointly developed in partnership with Arab, European, and US partners: the League of Arab States, the British Council, ISESCO, Qatar Committee for the Alliance of Civilizations and the Institute for International Education.

The program is funded through grants from the Federal Foreign Office of Germany and the Hermes Foundation.

The Fellowship Programme annually convenes emerging leaders from the Muslim World and the West, and provides them with travel opportunities in each other’s regions. Arab fellows travel to three European countries and the United States. US and European fellows travel to three countries in the Arab World. Among them, Lorenzo Kihlgren Grandi, founder of Il Tamarindo.
