UNAOC Organizes a Panel Discussion on "The Role of Religious Leaders in Peacebuilding in the Middle East" | UNAOC
The High Representative for the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC) is organizing a panel discussion on "The Role of Religious Leaders in Peacebuilding in the Middle East." The event will feature religious leaders representing the three monotheistic religions of the Holy Land – Muslim, Jewish, and Christian. The panel discussion will serve as a follow-up to the November 2016 Summit of Religious Leaders for Peace in the Middle East, held in Alicante, Spain - an initiative facilitated by the Spanish Government and sponsored by UNAOC. The Summit resulted in the adoption of the Alicante Declaration, which aims to facilitate the contribution of civil society to peace between Israelis and Palestinians.
