MOHA’s Objectives

MOHA Research Center, with headquarter in Kavala, in the house of the family of Mohammed Ali recognizes in its environment the particular influences it has from:  a) the history, the geopolitical position and nature, the relief and beauty of the city of Kavala and of the wider region, b) the East and its cultures over the centuries, c) Egypt and its culture as it is reflected in the personality of Mohammed Ali, d) the Mediterranean and its cultures.

Based on the above, MOHA’s particular objectives are:

  • The systematic study, recording, documentation and maintenance of the cultural diversity, which is found in the modern world and in the wider area of the Mediterranean and the near East.
  • The study of the history and the interaction of the Mediterranean and Middle East civilizations and their impact upon the scientific, technological and cultural heritage of the modern world.
  • Promote the Islamic and the Western World to become more understanding of each other by generating social cohesion, cultural awareness and mutual respect.
  • Share the belief that a peaceful coexistence of the people can only be achieved through the study of history and the mutual recognition of common values.
  • Encourage young students to view scientific and technological innovation as a positive and constructive channel of the personal expression of beliefs and as an alternative to social or religious isolation.
  • Make policy makers understand that scientific and technological heritage can act as a bridge between communities, thereby increasing domestic social cohesion and inter-cultural respect.
  • Unite people against “violence in the name of religion” by highlighting the importance of common cultural paths.
