During her visit to Rhodes (19/01/2018), the Austrian Ambassador Andrea Ikic-Böhm also met the President of the House of Europe in Rhodes, Founder and Head of the Organizing Committee of RhodesMRC, Mr. Michael G. Kavuklis. The Austrian Embassy is connected with the House of Europe in Rhodes in particular via the “Rhodes Model Regional Cooperation”, in which young people simulate regional international organization. Ambassador Andrea Ikic-Böhm was interested in the various activities of the House of Europe and welcomed this volunteer-based initiative, which makes it possible for young people to have a direct experience of Europe. Especially the European Union, whereby Austria will preside over the Council in the second half of 2018, and the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe / OSCE, chaired by Austria in 2017, as well as the Council of Europe as guardian of human rights, democracy and the rule of law play an important role for Austria.
