10th Anniversary celebration of the NATO CIMIC Centre of Excellence
We are particularly proud to welcome the President of the Republic of Croatia, H. E. Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic on this occasion, who will receive the inaugural 2017 CIMIC Award of Excellence for her contributions to Gender and the empowering of women and girls around the world. The institutional Award will be accepted by UN OCHA’s Civil-Military Coordination Section.
The motto of the Anniversary “From the Protection of Culture to the Protection of Civilians” has been chosen, to arch the wide span of the activities and tasks relevant to successful Civil-Military Interaction. Karl von Habsburg-Lothringen, the President of Blue Shield International, has agreed to provide a key note address at this event.
