Steering Committee

The AGYA is independent in respect to the content and forms of its academic activities. The activities of the AGYA are carried out by its members and coordinated by the Steering Committee consisting of three Arab and three German members. They invest a significant amount of effort and time to establish a network of cooperation partners by meeting politicians and leaders of academic institutions in the 22 Arab member states and Germany. The AGYA has two Co-Presidents. Prof. Dr. Ahmad Sakhrieh holds the office of the Arab Co-President and Prof. Dr. Kalman Graffi acts as German Co-President. Together with the other members of the Steering Committee, they represent the AGYA regularly at international conferences and actively engage in exchange with leading academic institutions in Germany and the Arab world.
