This initiative is a partnership between UNESCO, the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC) and other key stakeholders around the world.

GFPMIL will not be another academic meeting but a more focused and permanent mechanism aimed at:

  • articulating concrete partnerships to drive MIL development and impact globally;
  • enabling the MIL community to speak as one voice on certain critical matters, particularly as it relates to policies;
  • further deepening the strategy for MIL to be treated as a composite concept by providing a common platform for MIL related networks and associations globally.

With Africa as an overarching priority for UNESCO, GFPMIL will incorporate the Pan-African MIL and Intercultural Dialogue Conference as the first global partnership project.

This conference is supported by Saudi Arabia, a bilateral partner with significant involvement in UNESCO projects on MIL and intercultural dialogue.
