PLENARY SESSION 1
"Interreligious and Intercultural Dialogue:
A Tool for Conflict Prevention and Post-Conflict Peacebuilding"
10:30-13:00, United Nations Headquarters Conference Room 4
The majority of today’s conflicts are identity-based clashes of religions, cultures, and/or ethnicities. In this respect, engaging in and strengthening interreligious and intercultural dialogue has never been more pertinent in achieving mutual understanding and social cohesion. Promoting religious and cultural diversity is an ongoing and adaptive process unique to each national and local context. The plenary session will provide an opportunity to share lessons-learned and good practices in the area of interreligious and intercultural dialogue as tools for conflict prevention and peacebuilding.
