Johannes Paulmann sagte: »The signing of the Memorandum of Understanding is an important step for the Leibniz Institute of European History (IEG) in extending its strategic network with international partners. The Institute conducts research on the modern history of Europe and its transnational relations with the wider world. Arab-European cultural relations have been of great bearing in European developments. It is therefore of high value to us to cooperate with the renowned Abu Dhabi Arabic Language Centre (ALC) in facilitating a broad understanding of their historical dimensions and contemporary significance. As Director and author, I have had the pleasure to visit the Abu Dhabi International Book Fair earlier this year. I was very impressed by the manifold and lively events. I am very much looking forward to joint literary and academic activities in Germany and Abu Dhabi. IEG and ALC will build a fruitful network of people to further the cultural and scholarly exchange in the present and for the future.«
