Register here [1].

Peace between Israelis and Palestinians is desired by these people and the entire world! Are religions an obstacle or a solution to peace?

About this event

Peace between Israelis and Palestinians is desired by the entire world!

The solution to the conflict has been entrusted to political leaders. What about religions? Are they an obstacle to peace for fundamental reasons or only as passionate symbols, are they instrumentalised by powers? Can obstacles be overcome and religions become a solution and a way to true peace?

The Forum takes a long-term view and offers wisdom on how civil society can advance peace.
