The UN Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC) and IPS-Inter Press Service International Association (IPS) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) “to enhance their cooperation in the fields of intercultural and inter-religious interaction and cooperation in all areas of joint interest and responsibility.” The MoU was signed by Ambassador Nassir Abdul Aziz Al-Nasser, UN High Representative for the Alliance of Civilizations, and Ambassador Walther Lichem, Vice-chair of the IPS-Inter Press Service International Association, at the IPS offices in Rome on March 24.

The two institutions agree to collaborate in the organization and implementation of activities to “help widen journalists’ understanding of critical international issues – particularly in those fields where politics and religion intersect – and enhance their capacity to inform the public accurately and in a balanced way”, including training workshops for journalists and editors’ roundtables, taking advantage of the existing regional infrastructure and expertise of IPS.
