One Year On: Global Action on Freedom of Religion or Belief
One year on from the International Ministerial Conference on Freedom of Religion or Belief (FoRB), hosted in London, this timely discussion outlines the lessons UK foreign policy can learn from global approaches to the promotion of religious freedom and the protection of religious minorities.
This event, organised by the Foreign Policy Centre and Aston Centre for Europe, will look at the outcomes from other international approaches, following on from the call for increased global action on Freedom of Religion or Belief for all by last year’s conference participants, which included governments, parliamentarians, faith and belief representatives.
When considering these lessons and outcomes, the event’s participants will put forward the need for an interreligious and intersectional perspective, primarily the inclusion of class and gender, when promoting FoRB.
Please join us for the discussions on Tuesday 4th July from 18:00-19:30 BST on Zoom.
