The Albanian Forum for the Alliance of Civilization (AFALC) is a non-governmental organization, created in July 17, 2007. Together with other similar initiatives worldwide, AFALC responds to the broad consensus among nations, cultures and religious beliefs that all societies are inter-dependent in their endeavors for development, security and economic prosperity. AFALC operates in accordance with the objectives of the “Alliance of Civilisations” launched by the UN Secretary General in November 2006. Emigration, youth, education and media are four main priority fields of activity of the “Alliance of Civilization” defined in the High Level Group's Report of United Nations.
AFALC is the head of the Albanian National Network of the Euro-mediterranean Anna Lindh Foundation. Many of their members are active in the field of gender equality and its problematics. AFALC undertakes every activity and project with the gender approach as a transversal axe.
The Forum is designed to disseminate and promote ideas, in view of strengthening the broad consensus of all religious communities or different ethnicities groups, guided by the principle that these communities are inter-dependent in their endeavors for development, security and economic prosperity. AFALC intends to become a regional centre, to generate a collective and political will aimed at mobilization in joint actions, at institutional and social level, in order to overcome prejudices, erroneous perceptions and the opposing polarization to this consensus.
