Cultural diplomacy – Reopening of Gaza’s Institut Français (April 13, 2016)

It has been decided to reopen the Institut Français in Gaza, which has been closed for a year and a half.

It is the only foreign cultural institution in Gaza.

Its activities will resume gradually, giving the people of Gaza access to the French language and culture.

Although the humanitarian situation remains particularly troubling, this is a way for France to offer the residents of Gaza a message of hope and support.
