"On a Common Path"

Lebanese Association for History president Nayla Hamadeh attended a meeting of the League of Arab States on behalf of EUROCLIO – European Association of History Educators. The meeting was called for by Ms. Samia Bibars, Director of the Inter-Civilizational Dialogue Department at the Arab League, to discuss the official launch of the ‘Guidebook for History Textbook Authors “On a Common Path”’. The Guidebook is the result of a cooperation between UNESCO, ISESCO, the Swedish Institute in Alexandria, EUROCLIO, the League of Arab States and the Anna Lindh Foundation. In May, a follow-up meeting will be organised by the Arab League; the official launch of the Guidebook is planned for November, 2017.
