Declaration (full text)

“Support for post-conflict institutional re-building as well as capacity and leadership development needs to commence as soon as the conflict situation allows for it. Through our sustained academic cooperation, our collective efforts can serve to bolster institutional ties and people-to-people relationships, while strategically helping to minimise the brain drain from the higher education sector of the home country.”
