Interfaith and Humanitarian Issues
Regional Interfaith Dialogues have affirmed that "Believers, communities, and institutions exercise a distinct and vital role in the promotion of peace, development, and human dignity in this region".
Interfaith and Social Justice embraces development, the promotion of peace in the region, delivery of humanitarian aid, sharing of resources, aid, steps to achieve the eradication of poverty, and the encounter of equality between men and women of all cultures and religious beliefs.
Regional Interfaith Dialogues promote development: "We ask that faith groups and civil society develop partnerships with each other and with governments to work for social and economic justice, minority empowerment and reconciliation among conflicting groups within society."
The United Nations Declaration on Human Rights provides the necessary freedoms in order that human life may flourish and that peace, harmony and cooperation is possible among all peoples.
The recent United Nations proclamation of World Interfaith Harmony week is one such initiative where Interfaith activity is a vehicle for fostering regional project-driven activities across faith communities that focus on community service and development, environmental challenges and social justice.
