About World Interfaith Harmony Week

World Interfaith Harmony Week LogoWorld Interfaith Harmony Week is an annual event in the first week of February each year. This is an activity supported by member-states of the United Nations.

The foundation to World Interfaith Harmony Week lies in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, in particular the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion. This declaration enjoins on all nations to follow freedom of religion and belief and the practice of that belief, in whatever form or rituals that expresses a belief-system.

The United Nations went one step further in forming the Alliance of Civilisations. The Alliance of Civilizations was proposed by the Prime Minister of the Government of Spain, José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero, at the 59th General Assembly of the United Nations (UN) in 2005. It was co-sponsored by the Turkish Prime Minister, Recep Tayyip Erdo?an. The initiative seeks to galvanize international action against extremism through the forging of international, intercultural and interreligious dialogue and cooperation.
