"The values of the Anna Lindh Foundation are those adopted by the Euro-Mediterranean Partnership from the Barcelona Declaration to the Paris Summit: acceptance of pluralism and cultural diversity, mutual respect between societies, religions and beliefs, acknowledgment of rule of law and fundamental freedoms.

"Those values inspire the work of the Foundation within the civil society and the collaboration with its partners at the national and regional level, as well as the relations between its members and the relation of the Headquarters with the Networks.

"Co-finananced by the forty-three countries of the Union for the Mediterranean and the European Commission, the ALF is ruled by a Board of Governors composed by representatives of those countries.

"The Board, which is chaired by Veronika Stabej (Slovenia) and has a Deputy Chair in Mohamed Mahjoub (Tunisia), is responsible for approving the ALF programme and budget. The President of the Foundation is André Azoulay (Morocco) and the Executive Director is Andreu Claret (Spain)" [1]

On 6 February 2011 "We would like to inform you that the Anna Lindh Foundation has reopened its offices at the Bibliotheca Alexandrina and the ALF Secretariat has reassumed its activities. A work agenda focusing on the priorities of the Foundation has been set-up until the situation in Egypt will stabilise. We are working to have the Secretariat of the Foundation fully operational as of next week. " [2]
