On January 17th 2017, the Missions of Canada, the United States, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, and the Delegation of the European Union to the United Nations will jointly host a full-day forum on combating anti-Muslim discrimination and hatred.
This high-level forum will highlight the growing challenges of anti-Muslim discrimination and hatred in various contexts, and focus on substantive tools for addressing them. Three interactive panels will consider important and complementary tools to combat anti-Muslim discrimination and hatred in anti-discrimination law enforcement, civil society coalition-building, and positive narratives to promote pluralism and inclusion.
Panelists will include government, civil society, and private sector representatives. They will assess the scope of rising anti-Muslim discrimination and hatred worldwide, compare government and private sector responses, share best practices, and provide concrete recommendations for combating anti-Muslim discrimination and hatred.
Video message from UN SG António Guterres will open the event.
During the lunch break event attendees will be able to enjoy a film screening of "The Sultan and the Saint," directed by Alex Kronemer (speaker in the final panel). The film is about the positive impact of interfaith dialogue and understanding: https://www.sultanandthesaintfilm.com/
