From 13 to 19 September 2015, he accompanied a delegation of 14 Tunisian members of parliament visiting French institutions.

    Catherine Chavrier - French Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Paris, France - 19 February 2016

We had a deadline on 1 January: an improved version of the Ministry’s website, with a new design and revised content. No budget and no outsourcing, so we would have no time off at Christmas. The team consisted of a dozen people, dipped in the fountain of youth at an average temperature of 28 years old; add to that a healthy dose of talent, determination and good humour… On 26 December 2004, aboard our little ship, it was all hands on deck.

  • 26 December 2004: When the impossible becomes reality

    26 December 2004. There had been an earthquake measuring 9.5 on the Richter scale off the coast of Sumatra, then a devastating tsunami had struck Indonesia, the coast of Sri Lanka, southern India and the west coast of Thailand with unprecedented force.

  • Arabic and me

    Thierry Vallat - French Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Paris, France - 26 November 2014

    On returning to France and searching for a place where my children could continue to learn Arabic, I was faced with the problems one might expect in such a situation, regarding distance, class times, and quality of teaching.
