This yearly event involves all the rectors of our associated universities, their delegates and representatives of international relations. In addition, representatives of international institutions, NGOs and politicians are also invited to join our Assembly.
In the present context, which is characterized by considerable uncertainty at the international level, universities in the Mediterranean are called upon to play an even more important role in strengthening regional stability through inter-university cooperation, student and teacher exchanges and support for understanding between peoples and respect for cultural diversity. Our meeting will certainly be an opportunity to strengthen the links and collaboration between the associated universities and with international institutions.
