A New Narrative of Abrahamic Family Tolerance from the United Arab Emirates
November 18, 2020 at 6:30 am - 8:30 am EST
Hosted by the Ministry of Religious Affairs of the Republic of Indonesia and the Leimena Institute, this webinar will take look at the United Arab Emirates’ experience in building communication and relations between Muslims, Jews, and Christians, as one Abrahamic family and how it promotes tolerance and peace in the world, beyond the Abrahamic family itself. We will explore the reasoning behind the initiative, its challenges and how the UAE is working to overcome them. We will also listen to other perspectives from outside of the UAE to better understand the broader impact of the initiative. These and other lessons learned will be invaluable for other plural societies in fostering peace and harmony, while at the same time countering intolerance and extremism.
