Event description

Description

Mention religion in the context of international affairs and it automatically raises the red flag of violence and tension between different communities. However, this is to downplay or neglect the positive role inter-faith dialogue can play in resolving conflicts. When religion is a significant factor in violent conflict, traditional diplomacy is not always the most successful way to seek peace. Inter-faith dialogue, on the other hand, brings a spiritual dimension into the peace-making process, putting forward common values such as justice, compassion and the importance of social justice. This event will address inter-faith dialogue as a mechanism to effectively complement secular peace-making in mitigating violence and promoting peacebuilding.

Focal Point for the event: Ms Laurence Marzal (lm@ipu.org), Secretary of the IPU Standing Committee on Peace and International Security
