The roadmap introducing the AICESIS working program for 2015 - 2017 was sent to all members and is available on the AICESIS website. This document was drafted on the basis of the program presented by the new President of the AICESIS, Mr. Antonio Agripino NÚÑEZ COLLADO, and on the decisions taken by the General Assembly and the Board in Moscow (Russia, September 2015). The main working theme of the Association for 2015-2017 is "The role of ESCs-SIs in the fight against inequality linked to poverty."
