Dr. Serageldin also stressed the importance of working on finding a serious means of communication in order to create a new world order built on mutual trust between all parties. The conference was attended by former Latvian President and President of the Club of Madrid, Vaira Vīķe-Freiberga, who also co-chairs the Nizami Ganjavi International Center along with Dr. Serageldin. The center also participated along with the Club of Madrid in sponsoring and organizing the conference.


Heritage Days of Alexandria

For the first time, the “Alexandria Project” will cooperate with the Centre d’Etudes Alexandrines (CEAlex) and its Alexandrian partners to organize “Heritage Days of Alexandria”, which will take place during 7–14 November 2014. This initiative, which was started by the center four years ago, is inspired by the days of European heritage, which was a huge success in Europe. The initiative seeks to introduce the public to the history of Alexandria. This year’s round will be held under the theme of “The Hundredth Anniversary of WWI”, and it will give the public an opportunity to participate in a series of various events, such as conferences, festivals, exhibitions, film screenings, and historical site visits.
