Christian, Jewish and Muslim leaders in Vienna affirm social cohesion and peaceful coexistence

Unity among religious leaders is growing and it is a powerful message of hope in the Arab region, Christian, Jewish and Muslim leaders have heard at a Vienna conference on peaceful coexistence and diversity, whilst advocating the necessity of even more dialogue. The 26-27 February conference was organized by the Vienna-based International Dialogue Centre (KAICIID).

It was held at a time when people seeking to sow discord put religious differences as the cause of societal problems while faith leaders are working harder than ever for unity.

The Vienna-based center works with representatives of five major world religions, and has implemented programs in Nigeria, the Central African Republic, the Arab region, Myanmar, and Europe. It works with a wide range of international partners which include religious institutions, intergovernmental organizations such as the European Commission, United Nations, and civil society. More than 200 religious leaders, policymakers, academics, and representatives of international and civil society organizations attended the conference.

They included leaders from the Orthodox community, the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue, Muslim World League, Jewish leaders and the Evangelical Church of Egypt. Titled “Interreligious Dialogue for Peace: Promoting Peaceful Coexistence and Common Citizenship”.
