Mission Possible in Mediterranean
The symposium was the first sponsored by the newly-formed Study and Research Centre on Public Relations in the Mediterranean Area (CERRPMED), which plans to become a "permanent observatory on the application and development of public relations and communication within and between the countries of the Euro-Mediterranean region."
CERRPMED founding members are based in Israel, Turkey, Albania, Slovenia, Italy and Germany. The organization plans to expand in North Africa and the Middle East.
In his keynote address, "Public Relations: The Global Profession Addresses the New World Order," Paluszek told the symposium delegates that its mission was "precedent-setting and, perhaps, even historic." He suggested that such inter-cultural accommodation will require "dedication, patience, creativity and compromise ... rooted in reciprocal policy and performance."
