The role of interreligious dialogue and collaboration in combatting intolerance and discriminations. Mapping international initiatives and best practices. 

Interreligious Engagement

An initial closed-door policy dialogue was held in partnership with the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and ISPI. The international workshop brought together around 35 experts, diplomats, policy-makers, civil society actors working in the area of religion, who sought to map relevant initiatives and identify best practices and key areas of need.

This workshop was the beginning of a wider multi- stakeholder consultation process under the 2018 Italian OSCE Chairmanship, which aims to develop a set of policy guidelines, on how interreligious dialogue and collaboration can be successfully operationalised to further the aims of peace, sustainable development and human rights protection.
