Forum for Promoting Peace in Muslim Societies
The Forum for Promoting Peace in Muslim Societies was launched in 2014 in response to the unprecedented violence and devastation spreading throughout the Muslim world. The impetus for the initiative was the more dire situation than crises of the past. Conditions have rendered lands unstable and lead to distorted perceptions of Islam worldwide – particularly in the West, where prejudice and acts of violence against Muslims are increasing as a result of an escalation in Islamophobia.
The theme of the 2021 8th Assembly was “”Comprehensive Citizenship: From Shared Existence to Shared Conscience,” with government representatives, religious leaders, and hundreds of scholars from all religions, including many young scholars. The topic of citizenship, was selected given its primary importance to strengthening global peace and protecting stability in different communities.
